Although AMD will deny it, the Sempron numbers are meant to give a
comparison to a Celeron chip, and the Athlon series numbers are intended
to give the performance of that chip relative to a Pentium-4.

Obviously there are MANY variables: core type, cache size etc.

But I agree with you, I wouldn't fool with the "low-end" CPUs these
days, unless you happen to already have one.

Looks like CPU and RAM prices will drop even lower:
