  1. lol sempron.

    no i dont think its possible. even if it is, you are better off with a laptop given semprons suck from what i experienced

    How about a celeron? I hear that the semprons are good though? Like i said, I'm not gonna do it but was wondering if it is possible for under £200?
  3. the semprons are about on par with the celerons but not really given sandy bridge celerons are faster from the architecture.

    but then you have to factor in intel boards cost more than amd boards

    cant find a benchmark comparing the two

    Thats why i went AMD route, as the boards were cheaper, you are right though, will the price of lappys now, you also get a monitor, but would like a £200 system that i could do, even though i never will :lol:
  5. in canadian, 200 pounds is about 310 dollars. we can probably pull it off a intel rig as long as the store has a decent sale going on

    How about windows 8? when that comes out wont 7 be cheap? I might buy another windows 7 oem disc before they get phased out.
  7. id say it usually stays the same or goes up. thats the trend i saw with vista.
