I'm looking to replace my CPU and motherboard.Should I choose anAMD Sempron 3000+ with 128KB cacheorAMD Sempron 2800+ with 256KB cache?I'm thinking of using a Asus K8V SE Deluxe board.
are the 2 processors you are suggesting only the ones that are available to you or can you not get any others e.g Athlon 64, Athlon 64x2??
Jimmy14The ones I've suggested fit the board and fit my pocket.I'm guessing the Athlon 64's will be too much for me.I use the PC for office work, memory map, sage, a little picture editing and surfing. No games, haven't got time.
This would be better with added cacheAMD Sempron 2800+ with 256KB cache?
Thanks for your input folks
Hi OllyollyI have been searching and FYI the ASUS K8V-X seems to be getting OK reviews and combined with AMD Sempron 2800+ (Socket 754) 256kb inc heatsink and fan is coming in at £77.06 on Dabs.This mobo is picking up the same memory codes on crucial as the GA7VAXP so I am hoping I can reuse my existing RAM. What combo are you looking at - and whats your best price so far?!x
26trouble,I also had a look at the ASUS K8V-X SE on Dabs but decided against as it only has two dimm slots. I currently have RAM in all three.I think the Giga-byte GA-K8U fits my bill. AGP8, on board sound, socket 754, 3 dimm slots that take the crucial CT6464Z40B etc and about the same price as the ASUS.I needed to visit the Komplett site to confirm the GA-K8U memory requirements as I coundn't find the board on the Crucial site.click here is the URL for the Gigabyte board.The GA-K8U and a Semperon 2800+ with 256Kb cache comes to £76.28 inc P&P at Dabs. Fits my pocket.Good luck with the hunting :-)
seeclick herethe Asus one also appears to have 3 banks of RAM, I think I will try this one!!
26troubleThanks for the link.Beware!The link you gave me is for a K8V-X.Dabs are selling the K8V-X SE. See the bottom customer review.Cheers,OllyOlly
Can anyone tell me if I am right in thinking that an AMD Athlon 2800+ 385Mhz processor is actually a 2.8 Ghz processor?
