  2. SD 2400+ 166 MHz x 10,0 = 1667 MHz (Thoroughbred "B")

    XP 2000+ 133 MHz x 12,5 = 1667 MHz (Palomino, Thoroughbred "A", "B" or Thorton)

    Pretty equal

    Not really a simple answer to this as it depends on which MB you have and
    which 2000+ you have. The Sempron will be a newer core for sure, either a
    Tbred B or some variant. It will have good overclocking potential assuming
    your MB can reach a FSB of 200+ MHz. If the 2000+ is a Palomino or Tbred A
    core, then the Sempron would normally be a much better choice. If the
    2000+ is a Tbred B core, then it would probably be the better overall
    choice since it wouldn't require a FSB as high as the sempron would to
    reach the same clockspeed. it would clock nicely at 12.5x166 (2083MHz)
    where you'd have to raise the FSB on the Sempron to about 208MHz to reach
    the same clock speed, 10x208 (2080MHz). The Sempron is sure to be locked.
    If the 2000+ was an unlocked model, and Tbred B core, then you'd want it
    for sure since you could set any multiplkier you wanted up to 24x.
