Summary: This is an excellent budget CPU, and if you're short on cash, get a Sempron 64. You'll hardly notice the difference between this and an Athlon 64. My CPU-Z actually reports mine as an Athlon 64, which is odd. Don't let the 256KB of cache scare you away, you probably won't notice it. I can actually compare this with my Athlon 64 day to day usage.
Summary: This has been a really wonderful desktop processor. It runs faster than it looks, and can adequately power a low-range desktop computer. I would recommend this processor to anyone looking to build a new word-processing/ internet surfing PC on a budget.
Summary: A very value-priced processor that's great for daily tasks. With a decent motherboard and some decent memory, it can be overclocked to good speeds without any problems. Despite not support dual-channel memory, it still operates nicely without any slowdowns.
Pros: 64-bit support, low power, overclockability
Cons: 256-k L2 cache, original HSF is noisy, no C'n'Q support, single channel memory interface
Summary: This chip is awesome. It was quite fast at stock speed, but once i overclocked it, it became a beast. With the stock voltage of 1.4v, i got this baby from 1.6 ghz to 2.3ghz. I probably could push it further, but having two sticks of ram limits my computer. With only 1 stick, i have pushed it over 300fsb, which equates to over 2.4 ghz.
Summary: The Sempron 2800+ I received was labeled as a 32-bit but actually turned out to be a 64-bit version:-) I really do understand why AMD and other manufacturers market thing this way so, don't take the title literally. Anyhow this chip overclocks well. Perfect chip for a budget system.
Summary: I bought it for my desktop because I want to set up a server to share my pictures to my friends. And I found Sempron has low price but not bad performance. Besides, it is quiet and less thermal heat. Good for basic usage of computing.

Pros: Budget, Low Heating, Less Power Consumption, 64 Bit Architecture, Solid Built Quality, High Performance
Excerpt: "...if you want a cheap AMD processor for a tentative first-build, this is great, and not so bad for a basic home pc also, great value for money, and with the good heatsink and fan provided very safe to overclock without risk of overheating. ...
Summary: Неплохой процессор, несмотря на старость. Для работы, самое то. И стоит сейчас копейки. А маленькую частоту работы можно компенсировать разгоном. А разгоняется он прекрасно, и при этом менять стандартное охлаждение не потребуется. Стоит счас временно такой дома, 3000+. До 2.500 разогнал, а дальше просто материнка не дает. Но, надо понимать, что не для игр он, а для работы. И с GTS250, как делают некоторые, его использовать категорически нелогично.
Pros: Хороший разгон., Не сильно греется., Низкая стоимость.
