I dont like tray CPU's, I've had bad procs and it sure sucks to only get the 30 or 90 day warranty. (I can't remember which it is)

whats a tray CPU?
Also How does the Sempron Line differ from the normal athlon?

I have a athlon XP 2500 socket A with an ECS KT600 motherboard. I have problems with the USB ports on this motherboard. sometimes they just dont work, othertimes the USB device will just dissapear during a File transfer. I even bought a PCI USB card & put it in the mother board, Same problem.

Should I buy a new MB for this Athlon for $50, or would the Sempron combo be a decent upgrade from the socket A XP 2500?

I believe I have an XP 2200 and have the same USB problems.

the sempron combo looks like a very good deal. AMD sempron 3100+ goes for $135 (around). i'd consider this if u looking at upgrading =)

nice find laz

I honestly don't remember. It may be an ECS also.

I posted about this in early January. I finally got my backorder filled and the CPU was defective. They are sending me another one. Gotta tell you that they were VERY good about it even though the 30 return policy had basically expired.

Rumor has it that many, most?, of these bundled CPUs are shipping 64 bit capacity ENABLED. Also, the reviews on the 3100 have been quite solid.
