    I'm sure this has been discussed before but for those that aren't aware, I
    bought a mobo and Sempron processor. Doesn't boot. A quick visit to the
    Asus website explains that I need a BIOS upgrade for the mobo to
    support/boot with the Sempron.
    Fortunately I have an Athlon XP which I can fit temporarily to achieve the
    bios upgrade, but if I didn't I'd be a bit stuffed. Just something to
    consider before you purchase a Sempron, now that middle XP chips are
    becoming harder to find.

    no but not many do - and regardless you can't buy XPs less than 3000 now
    anyway, only Semprons are available. Luckily it does support it, but how
    you're supposed to achieve a BIOS upgrade if you only have the Sempron
    available I don't know. Lucky I have so many PCs in the house and could
    borrow one. It's up & running with the Sempron now, having done a BIOS
    update with a borrowed 2.2 XP
