if you want more speed

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...
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.
Pros: relatively low price, stability, good performence
Summary: The AMD dual core processors seem to be a better value than the equivalent Intel CPUs. This is another good CPU available from AMD. It is fast, runs cool and is energy efficient. The included heatsink/fan is nothing special.
Pros: Good Performance, Great Value, Energy Efficient
Summary: Got this for $60 at Frys and put in a new build, fired up right away and running well. My case is not the best for heat dissipation and the stock fan is not up to the task. Normally runs in the 40s C, but under heavy load runs into the 50s C. I'm looking for a better heat sink/fan.
Summary: AM2 processors are the beneficiaries of DDR2 ram price drops, and the X2 versions allow you to be ready for when more programs take advantage of dual core processors. The heat produced by these processors are very manageable, so that even budget builds can be quiet and relatively powerful.
Summary: My previous CPU was an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (2 ghz). Though outdated, it was pretty fast for what I did and made me want to buy another AMD product. This CPU does not disappoint. Getting a 65W cpu was crucial because my Shuttle barebone only had a 250W power supply. Installation was quick and simple.
Pros: Cost, 65W, quiet, Easy to Install
Cons: None to note so far. Price of this CPU keeps on changing.
Summary: Just got this processor because my brother needed my old setup cause his comp died. Very easy to install. I've been using AMD CPUs for every since computer I've ever built for myself and have never had any problems too major that couldn't be fixed with updates.
Pros: Fast, cheap, low power consumption, quiet
Cons: Haven't noticed too great a difference from my Athlon64 X2 3800+ 939 yet.
Summary: I bought this cpu to upgrade from my 1year old celeron D 345 (3.06 GHz), and it's really huge improvement. Since mobo, ram (ddr-> ddr2) are also changed, the huge improvement could be natural, but I think the mostly this cpu plays a really important role.
Pros: relatively low price, energy efficient, super fast
Cons: overclocking not satisfactory, low cache mem compared to upper level toledo model, included fan not so good (but doable)
