Do you believe anyone Gian? Tomshardware is a great resource and reliable information. They have no reason to "skew" results. If you dont believe any resources, do them your self.

There is no way in hell a Celeron D out of all processors is faster then a Sempron. By the way, Semprons will start to be released on the 939 chipset.

Not really; it was on Cnet
here you can believe from that what you want but of all the sources on the Internet even you must believe something from CNet.

About Destroyed; I didn't say that about AMD - I said that about whatever sizable edge they had, I neither said it didn't have an un-sizable edge nor did I say AMD has been destroyed.

I didn't say of the 6xx They're not even released fully; I said of 64-bit Processors and studying Economics is not required when its said in normal words that a 5 year old could read, and most 8 year olds could understand. Studying economics would not make that any more clear. I'm sure you probably have some brilliant Economist Source about Sales which could say otherwise to CNet?

Show us some where Sempron does as well against Celeron D as Celeron D did in those then?

He believes himself Tomshardware is not biased; it only ever seems to squewer information you think is wrong. It doesn't seem to have a trend - AMD win what they win everywhere else, Intel win what they win everywhere else. If Giancarlo could show they squewer anything that wouild be interesting but I'm pretty sure he's forgotten how to actually prove anything.

Whoa! All i wanted was some help and now i got a heated argument! Okay, i'm troubled now, but i think i may go for the Sempron 2200+ because of the price and the fact that i know more about them than Celerons.

I wouldn't go for a Celeron personally. They may have an advantage on certain things compared to the Athlon 64, but I reckon you should stick to the Sempron, Athlon 64 or the P4 6xx line. the reason for this is the P4 6xx is a well better CPU than the Celeron that has features that compare to the Athlon64. The Athlon and the Sempron are also great performers for the money and have the possiblity of upgrading in the future. The socket 478 and LGA775 does not (Dual cores need Mods).

If you have 150 budget for a CPU, go for a Athlon 64 3000+ on socket 939. Make sure it's a Winchester core as these will overclock better due to the 90nm manufacturing process. You can get that at www.ebuyer.com for 100. I see little reason for you to get the 3200+ for the 6-7% speed increase over the 35 premium. It will do what you want it to do no problem. Also, this is not too much more expensive over the Celeron D but has a lot more power than it as well as upgrade potential and 64bit support. Current SKT939 motherboards will also support AMD's dual cores when they are released. The P4 6xx series is out of your price league and really for your needs has very little advantages. You won't go wrong with the SKT939 Winchester Athlon 64 3000+.

Gaincarlo, can you not just cool it a little. Just like the arguments we had over the nVidia FX series and such, you are jumping in a blowing it out of proportion. I'm not saying don't view your opinion, but please just chill a little and read other post throughly, it's not a war.

Chill. Peace.

OK, the FX55 is a great CPU, but as the dude said, he only has 150. The best CPU that he can get for HIS situation for HIS budget is the Athlon 64 3000+ Winchester SKT939
