Summary: Honestly, I tried to watch the market go on ebay and even give results. At $ 10, how to get to pay for the CPU score is incredible. Computer performance, rose visibly and that only $ 10. Thank you, eBay!
Summary: I think that the processor is a good one, however, I bought it by mistake,(my own). It would not work in the situation that I wanted it for. I'm sure that there is nothing wrong with it, I just misapplied it.
Summary: Its a good "workhorse" sort of processor and I did make slight, though observable improvement in my computer over the a64 3000+ had in it before. It was as easy to install as the loast processor and there were no special software or firmware adjustments to make.

Summary: This processor is Fast But If purchased make sure this doesent happen!! The Pins Can Be Damaged Quite easily thus rendering the processor virtually useless, so if purchased handle with very cautious care in order to not damage the gold pins or the processor will not work in your mother board,also proper thermal grease is a must and must be a fresh clean application to the processor before mounting the heat sink and fan, never use pre existing grease from a used processor...
Summary: I havent completed building the new pc with the newest A64 3200+ I bought. But for a little over $30, which included HSF, I could not pass up this cpu bargain. I just recently gave away a 4 year old model that has never stopped kicking.
Pros: Still working strong after 4 years, so I bought a new one for 20% of what it cost back then
