939 Sempron vs. 754 Athlon

My cousins recently just gave me their old computer to tinker with, and I was wondering which CPU would pack more punch with my other old PC, since they seem roughly equal; the AMD Sempron 3200+ or the AMD Athlon 64 2800+?

Clock Speeds / FSB the Same
Athlon has 2x L2 Cache
Sempron is a newer socket
Sempron uses 90nm Tech rather than 130nm

    athlon should perform better with more cache...even on old socket
  2. But then with the 90nm tech the Sempron is likely to consume less power and produce less heat, correct?
