Im looking to buy a new Motherboard, Processor, and Ram

I was looking at the following...

AMD Sempron 2400+
512MB PC-2700 RAM
Socket A MotherBoard

http://shop3.outpost.com/produ...44?s...CH:MAIN_RSLT_PG' ">http://shop3.outpost.com/produ...sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

That deal works for me

I just have a few questions though...

Does the sempron run pretty cool?
Will it last at least 3 years
I dont plan on overclocking at the moment, if i did i would get Water Cooling first
I have an aluminum Case with 3 Case Fans, soon to be 5 Case Fans, an LCD Thermomiter which i believe to be acurate...

Currently i have a 1.4 ghz celeron with 256 ram, but the mobo has problems so i had to remove it, and now that computer is inoperable

So let me know if the Sempron runs cool enough to not worry...


Check out my website which is still in development...

Temps will vary, but generally I see most people running in the 40C range.

Life span also varies, but it *should* last 3 years...

Overclocking - if you plan on going past 200 MHz FSB, the board will limit you. If you plan on going anywhere past stock speeds, the RAM will limit you. Also, the watercooling kit should not be necessary, unless you try to push it to the extremes.
