Summary: If you have a single core processor and want more speed this is the way to go, I already put in the largest ddr ram cards and the speed got a little better, this processore was a game changer the speed improved a lot , also restored the computer to factory state twice in a row double overwriting the hard drive to get rid of hard drive errors helped a lot .
Summary: GOT IT SITTING IN A COMPUTER JUST WAITING FOR THE OTHER THINGS TO PUT IT TOGETHER I SHOULD HAVE WROTE DOWN WHAT I NEED FIRST THEN BOUGHT IT ALL TOGETHER MY BAD LOL.MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW TEAR
Summary: This went into a Compaq Presario SR2020NX,upgrading the CPU from an old Opteron .The speed increase was impressive and now HAL is running Windows Ultimate X64 with blinding speed.I even tested out the latest Beta of Windows 8 using this setup.
Summary: I own several AMD and Intel processor based computer systems and they both have there pro's and con's. By far the AMD 4200+ processor has the price advantage over the Intel processor. Runs cool, can easily hit 2.8 GHz with a good overclocking motherboard and is priced right for a budget build or HTPC computer. Installed this processor in a GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H for a nice HTPC computer. Excellent value.
Pros: Inexpensive - Low operating Temp With Supplied Stock Cooler - Energy Efficient At 65Watts - Overclocks Well - G2 Stepping
Summary: I used this CPU for my new (budget) build. It's definetly not the latest/fastest processor on the market, but it gets the job done. I could clearly see the improvement from my old Athlon 3000 . I am finally able to watch blue-ray movies on my pc with no stuterring. Overall, it's a very nice CPU for the price. You won't be dissapointed.
Summary: If you want to have a gaming CPU easy on the wallet, this is the sweet spot. Performs great all over, for extra punch in games make sure to download the drivers and timing optimizer from AMD, and another good thing is that there are bigger x2, x3 and x4 CPU's that use the same slot, so if after some time you need more power, those prices should eventually go down. ME, I am happy with it now and I dont plan on changing for a while.
Summary: This CPU is right at the sweet spot for price/performance ratio, and the price has even dropped since I bought mine 3 months ago. It's fast enough to handle most anything you can throw at it (for example Photoshop runs incredibly fast on the system I use this CPU in). Unless you're a gamer that plays the latest and greatest games the CPU's also powerful enough to last you for several years so it's a good choice for those who can't afford to upgrade every year or two.
Pros: Dual Core CPU. Fast enough that it'll last most people for several years. Excellent price, especially for the performance you get.
Summary: Along with a new MB and 2GB DDR2 ram, this CPU greatly enhanced my computing experience. Installation presented no problems, chip runs fast and cool with only a standard heatsink and fan. Average temp for processor is 36 degrees celsius. This is an excellent chip for a good price. Buy it!
Summary: Great performance! If you have a low budget and are looking for a gaming PC, this CPU is for you (3800+ X2 can do the trick too if you can get it). The price tag for this baby's performance is a steal. I tried higher processors and performance difference impact on games is minimal. I'll stick with this one for now. No more power than this is needed. Today's GPUs do all the raw gaming work.
Summary: Cheaper than counterparts of Intel branded Core Duos. Also benefit from the low priced DDR2 memory. A good choice to build a budget dual-core system. Not too much space for over clocking, but still it works stably. Low energy consumption, works well with my old 250W power supply. Good performance, views HD video without hesitation.
Pros: relatively low price, stability, good performence
