Any good?

Depends on what you wish a computer to do.

ONE:
The AMD Sempron line of Processors, are a Budget line of Processors.
Equate to comparing an Intel Celeron to an Intel Pentium.
(Celeron's are Budget/Starter processors)

[ The 'Sempy', and the 'Celey' have half of the Cache, that a comparable Athlon, or Pentium has.

(Cache for a Processor, is the first memory area that the Processor accesses.
The Cache operates at the same frequency rate as the Processor.

Cache for a Processor is a small memory area for the Processor)

Crude explanation of a Processor's cache;

You are writing a paper for college. You need more information for it.
Where is the information?

In a book, down in the basement, under the stairs, last book on the bottom in a box, and there is no basement light.

Down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand. Dig the book out, back up the stairs, open the book to the page you need.

You find you need more information, but it isn't in that book.
Yep, back down the stairs you go, flashlight in hand.

OR,
You could click a couple of keys on the keyboard in front of you, and have the information in seconds on your computer.

Basement scenario = Small processor cache
Computer scenario = Large processor cache ]

AMD Sempron:

List of AMD Sempron microprocessors,

2) HP Support > Compaq Presario SR1403WM desktop computer > Main Menu,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00257657&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=501310&lang=en

Note the supported Processors.
Note the processor socket type used; Socket 754.

Note the maximum Total amount of ram memory.

(2GB's of PC3200 ram memory will get you by just fine.
PC3200 is DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz.
{400MHz)

Me?
Again, depends on what you wish to do with the computer.

The AMD Sempron 3000+ processor, (That uses a Socket 754 processor socket), can operate at a maximum frequency rate, ('Speed') of 1.8GigaHertz.
(1800MegaHertz)

I would try to find an Athlon 64 that uses a Socket 754 processor socket.
Here is one example I just found from searching, (Not advertising for this person, or website. Just an example of what to look for)

http://cgi.ebay.com/AMD-Athlon-64-3200-Socket-754-CPU-BRAND-NEW-/320559466147?pt=CPUs

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (Socket 754)
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 2.2GHz
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 512KiloByte's.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Athlon%2064%203200+%20-%20ADA3200AIO4BX%20%28ADA3200BXBOX%29.html

(In comparison, the AMD Sempron 3000+ can operate up to a frequency rate of 1.8GHz.
Has an L1 cache of 64KB, and an L2 cache of 128KB.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K8/AMD-Sempron%203000%2B%20-%20SDA3000AIP2AX.html

Bump the Processor up, max out the Ram Memory, (2GB), install a decent PCI graphics card, and you'll be okay for basic internet, and watching a few movies. Even game playing if the game isn't too intense.
(War of Worlds at low settings, mmm okay
CS:S? Mmmmm, no)

Around my area, the computer tower by itself would sell for around $100 USD. With monitor, (Depending on type), keyboard, and optical mouse, (Throw the roller mouse in the trash), the price goes up.

Refurbished?

1) Generally means the inside of the computer, and the inside of the Power Supply, has been cleaned out. (May be a new cheap quality generic Power Supply installed instead)

2) Thermal paste in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, has been replaced. (Better be)

3) New Harddrive, with a fresh GENUINE copy of Windows installed.
This bumps the price up. Especially if Windows 7 has now been installed.

[Microsoft makes one master disk of an Operating System. Then GENUINE copies are made from it, and sold]

Look up the price of an IDE (PATA) harddrive, with the appropriate size. (150GB, 250GB, and so on)

Then find out which version of Windows 7 has been installed, and look up that price. Or whatever Windows operating system has been installed.

Add these two prices to a base price of $100 to $150, and see how the price compares to what is being offered to you.
