Summary: While one of the pins were bent thanks to it's extremely basic packaging (two slabs of cardboard wrapped in duct tape), It met expectations. It's a fairly weak processor, but didn't matter much in rebuilding an old XP build. It's now been a month since I got it (used) and it's still chuggin' along.
AMD Sempron is always a good choice for a budget minded enthusiast.

Summary: There are more of these AMD Sempron CPU's at budget prices than the same socket 754 Motherboards found at nominal prices. The 3000 Sempron is about at the top of what most budget socket 754 motherboards can digest comfortably.
Summary: This is an old chip with old technology that isn't very interesting. However, if you build a computer with this, it'll run Linux just fine. I'm glad I got it, and would recommend it for any purposes that aren't particularly resource-intensive.
