Yeah, I agree. They are better then Intel Celerons, but still not that great. What is your budget John?

Get a Celeron D if you're after Sempron 2400s and Athlon 2200s.

Well the thing is I was building a computer for my friend and I had the Athlon XP 2200+ and I put the thermal pad and the heatsink on right, but his processor was messed up so I sent it in for the warranty. So in the meantime I got a Sempron 2400+ becaue they are going to take a while. But when this things gets back I was wondering if I should keep the sempron and sell the athlon, or keep the athlon and return the sempron.

Lol; return both and get a Celeron D

Nah... erm... which is faster? Did you try out the Athlon?

I would go with the Sempron - its more up to date and the Athlon XPs were crap.

Ummm, HAHAHHAHH!! Athlon XPs were competing with the Pentium4 Lord K, the Celeron D doesn't stand a chance against one... Keep the AthlonXP, it is far better.
