    yes that will be a vast improvement. the sempron 2800+ runs at 2.0Ghz i believe and the x2 4200 comes at 2.2ghz with about 5-6x the transistors, more cache, and better instruction sets. and obviously two cores for multi tasking or programs that wil take advantage of them. how much of a difference you realize depends on how you use your machine.
