Budget PC

  1. Nov 8, 2004 #1
    My old PC which is for my son to play educational CD,
    hit by lightning and gone!

    For a child of 5 year-old, what budget pc is suitable for him?
    AMD semtron ok?

    I haven't used any Semprons myself but I think the Sempron would be a perfect match for that application. I would buy the slowest/cheapest Sempron I could find and build the new system around that. Newegg has Semprons starting at $45 USD *without* heatsinks/fans and $54 USD *with* heatsinks/fans.

    It looks about the same to me, except it costs $66.50 instead of $54.
