Summary: I recently was faced with the task of either buying a new computer or rebuilding one that had bit the dust. For several reasons I chose the latter. As part of the rebuild I chose to upgrade to a dual core processor. I chose this unit for two reasons.........features and price.
Summary: The future of CPUs is undeniably multi-core. Obstacles such as heat have forced both AMD and Intel to begin devolping CPUs with multiple processing cores, opening up a new world of possibilities.
Summary: This processor is very nice, it works very well and it is quite fast. I installed it into a 2004 system that was very slow before, and now is nice and fast. i got it used for 55 dollars, and it was very worth it. If you need a dual core for an old socket 939 system, get this processor.
