    Sempron 3100?

    Anyone tried one of these? - just got a cheapish Chaintech socket 754 board off a b list and was thinking of getting one of these. Its not meant to be a superspeed machine, just one that'll play games with a 9800pro and be reasonably quick.

    Expect similar performance to the Celeron D's. Don't think there's 3.1GHz Celeron D though!

    That sounds good to me - looks to run on very low voltage so just ordered one - should hopefully run cool enough for a fairly silent machine as well. The chaintech board doesn't have any locks so doubt I can overclock it that far anyway.

    Which board?
    The VNF3-250 has locks & a very good reputation as a budget (£60) overclocker.

    I got a ZNF3-150 new with all the gubbins for 45. Its got an AGP lock but no PCI so I'll just see how we go. I was looking for something that was feature rich and couldn't go past the CBOX and the 7.1 sound. Got an NF7S v2 with a Zalman NB cooler and an XP-M2500 so by the time I've sold that I won't be that far out of pocket.

    It outperforms all the Celerons because of it's Athlon64 arcitecture.
    I don't mean to sound cold, or cruel, or vicious, but I am so that's the way it comes out.
