All true, but the bottom line is that most of the low-end chips are dogs, as far as performance goes. The 1st PC built is a Duron. The sole reason I keep it, is that it's the 1st PC I ever built !

BUT, I had an experience recently which MIGHT help the OP: try 32-bit Windows 7 ! When you mentioned the Sempron, I remembered a Sempron install I did a couple months ago, to replace an ailing XP. I works reasonably well w/ just 2GB of RAM under 32-bit Windows 7. Perhaps if he can get his hands on a x86 Windows 7....

Pound-for-pound, you're always better off w/ a desktop, esp for modern games, unless money is not a real consideration. Later....
