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: This processor is perfect for me. I expected a little more out of it because it's a dual core but it still is a step up from what I had before. Also for a dual core it stays really cool with the help of Arctic Silver which I highly recommend.
Summary: I'm gamer but not extreme, with this I can play anything combined with other stuff of course. I made some O.C. and it runs perfect. I added a Zalman Fan Cooler to prevent overheating. Recomended!
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 processor is fast. It works quiet, in fact shhhh listen, hear anything on my end see quiet did i mention fast and sweet. Yeah man I'm running PhotoShop Illustrator and Quark all a the same time and it's not even like it's being bothered. I had my bro over clock it a bit and it's still ticking.
Summary: This processor is the bonb! lol. I recently upgraded and I must say my pc is just zooming along. I can have multiple applications open and the pc doesn't freeze up. So I would definately say buy this product!
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: 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: 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: 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.
