Can someone help me weigh out the specs and tell me if I'm taking a step DOWN??
Old mobo(crashed): Intel Celeron Processor 2.66Ghz, 256K L2 Cache, 533MHz FSB
Recommended replacement mobo: AMD Sempron 3000MHz+ Processor 1.80GHz / 128KB Cache / 800MHz FSB HT(1600 MT/s)
I noticed that the new one is almost 1 GHz less than my old one. (Intel: 2.66GHZ, AMD 1.80GHz) Is this bad? Or does more speed somewhere else make up for this?
I also noticed that the L2 cache is dramatically less too, is this bad? Or does more speed somewhere else make up for this?
Furthermore, why does it say AMD Sempron 3000+MHz but is only 1.80GHz processor?
Thanks to everyone who helps out
