How will this new processor compare? I switched because my P4 has been creating excessive heat. I am hoping that this machine will be a bit cooler. I dont expect it to run faster, but hope it doesnt go too much slower. Anyways, just wanted to stop by and say hi.
Welcome to the forums and I think you will be nicely surprised. The AMD Sempron 2800 should run much cooler, meaning arond 30-40*C idle, and load should be 35-45*C. It will also perform very well compared to the Pentium 4 3ghz.
