So, what is better the sempron or the celeron? wich 1 has better gameing performence?

More about : celeron sempron

Neither is particularly good for gaming (or anything else for that matter). Can you not stretch to, say, an E6400?

If you have to get one of these two, then the Sempron wins hands down. Bear in mind though that if your looking for a higher end Sempron, you might be better getting a cheap A64 - here in the UK anyway, you can get an AM2 1.8GHz A64 for about the same price as an equivalently clocked AM2 Sempron with half the cache :?

If I went to core 2 duo I would go with a e6600, wich is pricey to say the least I need a computer now with ddr2 and pcie. budget is about 500 bucks. building from scratch ram, video card, hard drive, psu, case.

Go with sempron....unless you get a Celeron D 352/356 and overclock it to 5 GHz. That'll work too. So it's easy: if you don't plan to overclock: SEMPRON. If you plan to overclock: CELERON D 356. The biggest problem with the Celeron D 352/356 is the high price. Expect to pay around $80. There are cheaper Celerons, but non of them run as cool or overclock as well as the Celeron D 352/356 (and all the others have 256KB L2 cache). A cheap sempron can be had for almost half the price of a Celeron D 356, and gives great performance in games. Unless you have to go socket AM2, I would suggest a socket 939 system with an Athon 64 3000 (Sells for $60)

I would probly overclock, but should I go light on the ram/video card, or just get a good cpu. I think I would see less of a difference with cpu then I would if I went with less ram, and a cheeper video card.

Are you in the USA? If so, get an Athlon 3000+ AM2! Overclocks like crazy, and inexpensive. AM2 MOBOs are cheap, as are the CPUs.

Anyway, if you could swing it, an Overclocked e6300 or X2 4200 would be hard to beat for the best performance per dollar ratio!

He wasn't asking for the best gaming CPU. He was asking to compare the Celeron D and Sempron 64. He also didn't ask for additional CPUs.

How's this for a value processor....WTF is AMD thinking? Keep in mind this is CAD. 8O

NO CELERON, PLEASE!
Every cent spent on (desktop) Celerons is lost. THey're sluggish, not only in games but everywhere. Just built a Sempron 2800+ (1.6G, S754) for a friend yesterday and it killed the performance of a 2.67 GHz CeleronD.

P.S: And don't get fooled by astonishing figures of 4+ GHz OCing; 4GHz over, say an original 2.67 is 50%, just as much as sending a 1.6G sempron to 2.4G and the sempron will still perform better and run cooler an stock HSF (while the celeron D may even need a $100 watercooling system to get to 4G).

Both have their strong/weak points..similar to their bloodlines. For office-type apps, and video encoding, Celeron(as P4) are good. For gaming, without a doubt...Sempron(as A64). GL :)

People are so quick to knock the celeron, when the new Cele D 356 is actually quite good. 512k cache (ie it's an identical CPU to P4 of only just over a year or so ago), it's 65nm so runs cool - people saying you need anything more than stock cooling are lying, and it can overclock like a crazy thing, 5GHz is possible. For single threaded apps it is the bang per buck king.
September 26, 2006 9:30:55 PM

You're nuts. No point in a $80 Celery when you can get an 805 for $95. And I'd still stay away from both of them, lol.
September 26, 2006 9:47:22 PM

Problem is the 805 costs $195 when you add in the $100 water cooling rig you need for this beast. Also in SINGLE THREDDED APPS the cele D is faster, period!

The Sempron64 wins and its not even close!

And whoever said the Sempron is poor for gaming, think again.

I have no issues playing any games. My framerates are smooth.
In fact I just got a check for $26000 and I have no desire to upgrade yet.

If I come into a game or program where I feel I need something faster then I'll upgrade. Otherwise I'll just sit and wait for quad core to drop in price.
Braggard...Too bad you couldn't buy a new personality with all that money....you need it. :roll:

The retail Sempron 2800 is $40. Overall a better processor. Especially better for gaming. Nuff said.

agreed! There is actually a thread on here with some benchmarks in it showing an overclocked sempron x2 3600 competing with an e6300. Given that overclocked vs stock is not far, it definately proves the sempron is no slouch.

Grab up the AM2 Manila (sempron 2800) for $40, overclock it, and be happy...
September 27, 2006 5:08:41 AM

I think i'l go with the sempron. OK, now the mobo.....lol jk. in the end I gess i'l just go with what I want anyway.

thanks guys. :wink:
September 27, 2006 10:40:28 AM

mombo budget please.(and what socket) For a sempron, I'd get something around $60-70 at most.

the fewer the better :wink:
