Summary: I saw the current price on this ($400.00)? and just had to comment. I purchased this cpu 2 years ago for around $139.00, and have to say it was (and still is) a great single core cpu. I have used it for intensive gaming and video editing as well as day to day internet,word processing etc.
Summary: Supposedly this chip can be significantly overclocked. Practically impossible to find this at a good price now since it's the end of the line for this chip. Upside with the box is the 3 year warranty and comes with fan.
Pros: Plug and play. Significant speed increase over my older Athlon XP 3000+
Summary: For the price, well worth it! Would buy again but I am upgrading to a higher end processor. Still sticking to AMD though. Other brand runs too hot and seems to not run near as fast as these do at single core!
Pros: Excellent speed for the price! Have had for a year and have had no problems runs nice and cool at stock, but went ahead and slapped some Arctic Silver and there just to drop the temps a few degrees.
Cons: I assume the bad things about this processor go here.
