I am not a gamer, but I picked this comment up. It is from this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/fo.....onsidering
"The Sempron LE-1300 is a single-core 65 nm K8, NOT a K7 Athlon XP. It's essentially half of a Brisbane K8 with half of the L2 cache. The Sempron will not be all that slow compared to a dual-core in all but the newest and most-demanding games and will be MORE than fast enough in office apps and general usage (I use a 1.067 C2D ULV and a 1 GHz Coppermine Celeron for those tasks and they are plenty. The Sempron is far faster.) The 45 nm Semprons are very efficient and run very cool and quiet, which is far better for a mostly general-usage desktop machine than being able to run a little faster some of the time but being hotter and noisier all of the time."
