    My Sempron slaps my X2 :slap: when overclocked.Both my X2 and sempron at there max overclock the sempron still gets higher in benchmarks.Just some info.Maybe that 440 celeron will keep up with the C2D when overclocked i am sure it will do better than the Celeron.

    Sempron beating an X2?

    Stop gimping your x2, kthxbye.

    Takes 2600+mhz to keep up with a single 2.2Ghz A64. Benchmarks will prove this, very very easily.

    Conroe-L Celerons will effectivly behave very very close to an A64 and probably out perform a single core A64 without even swapping the cooler for something better.

    it IS.

    Just single core. (Secondary core is disabled. Don't bother asking how to enable it, because you can't)

    Those suckers OC like a squirrel on crack.
