The processer is sempron BTW. Questions; how much better is athlon then sempron. Is it worth 20 for a 3000 athlon xp. Next, I'm planning on upgrading the graphics to an x800 or 6800GT in a couple of months, should I stick with the 9200 till then or go for a 9600 128mb to keep me going (34). Lastly, do I really need 512mb ram? Should I upgrade that and leave the others. It's an extra 60 for 1gb and i don't want to spend more than 460. Suggestions?
