Sempron 3000+ PIII

  1. I am interested to buy a $264 Acer T120 desktop with the following configuration because of the low price:
    Sempron 3000+ 2.0Ghz, 40Gb HD, 256MB RAM, CD ROM, built-in LAN interface, audio and video (No OS installed).

    I will use the PC for word processing, surfing, burning CDs and Photoshop.

    Will I see a a significant improvement in terms of performance compared to a similarly configured Pentium III 667 Mhz used PC?

    I may try doing video editing and learn how to do PC-based music recording. I'm willing to buy extra memory, bigger HD and DVD writer for this purpose. I don't want to buy/build a high-end PC now because it might take me some time to learn the editing and recording. By that time, computer parts may have dropped significantly. So I guess it's better to buy/build the configuration that I want later.

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    It should be faster. The only thing is some cheap pc's aren't upgrade friendly, so you might not be able to upgrade things like the graphics chip, etc.
