    Athlon 3200XP Vs Socket 754 Sempron 2800

    Hi all,

    Apologies for 2 topics on this subject, last one I promise.

    I'm scrapping together an old PC for my parents and I have a choice of CPU/mobo/RAM.

    On the one hand I can give them an Athlon XP3200+ with 2gb PC3200.

    Alternatively they could have a socket 754 Sempron 2800 with 1.5GB PC3200 (less RAM slots on this mobo).

    I'm aware that the XP3200 comfortably beats out the Socket 7 Sempron 2800+, but I can't find anything about how the Socket 754 version compares.

    At the moment they're getting the Athlon, but I'd appreciate some confirmation.

    Cheers!

    I would say the XP3200 would be faster than the Sempron 2800+ even though the latter is a newer architecture the former is clocked much higher and has twice the cache too!
