Yeah definatley, semprons are great for desktop machines (suprisingly more powerful than you might think (built my girl a PC for her birthday and was shocked to say the least at how powerful the sempron was), but you really dont want to rely on it for a busy web server). For lower end, go for a Pentium 4, and if you have alot of money to spend go for a Dual Core/Dual Processor system.

Well for low end web servers Sempron would be fine I guess...I mean, in terms of the Intel equivilant of the Sempron - the Celeron, I know a few people who run Linux webservers with Intel Celeron processors (i.e. one guy I know has a web server that is a 2.0ghz socket 478 celeron with 256mb ram and a 40gb hdd) and it runs really well. However, as Missing-Score already said, you don't want to rely on a desktop processor for a busy webserver.
