Yo tambien soy de Argentina Cualquier Motherboard con un Chipset que soporte un Bus de 333 MHz (Osea, Barton) va a poder con un Sempron sin problemas. Como todos esos Motherboards son relativamente antiguos, marcas como Asus (Lo se porque lo confirme en su Pagina Web) sacaron nuevos BIOS para poder reconocer los Procesadores Sempron por Plug and Play (Osea, que puedan leer el CPUID para saber que Procesador le has insertado y que pueda detectar Voltages y otro tipo de cosas por su cuenta). De no tener esa actualizacion pero que el BIOS te permita configurar esos valores manualmente, aunque el sistema no reconosca muy bien que Procesador le has puesto, lo puedes tener funcionando perfectamente (Es eso lo que se hace con los Mobile Athlon XP, si bien no son oficialmente soportados por ningun Motherboard de Escritorio, se los puede hacer andar sin problemas). Te recomiendo que confirmes por tu cuenta esto ultimo y hagas tus propios experimentos...

Asrock has updated their bios support for the Sempron cpu's. You will need the latest bios for the particular board.

Asus has probably updated their bios to support the semprons as well.

Best bet is to check each respective manufacturers websiet for the particular motherboard you are using.
