Summary: I get this to replace a sempron processor it worked perfectly. I didn't have to change any settings in my factory Hp Compaq workstation, the cpu was automatically configured and functional. The only thing I had to do was to confirm the hardware change when powering on the machine for the first time. It's the same as if you had added or removed memory.
Summary: Cheap processor now. Runs Windows 7 and newest Ubuntu no problems. Will run your office programs no problem. It will even stream netflix. I picked mine up for $20 and put together a PC for less than $100.
Outstanding perfromance for the cost; couldn't be happier.

Summary: CPU purchased for a home LAN 'server' build. Installed on an ASRock 990FX Extreme3 with 8GB memory, running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. Windows Experience rates the CPU at 6.4 (out of 7.9 max), so it performs very well. The PC it is powering has 9 hard drives, plus SSD system disk, sharing out video, pictures, user shares. It also serves as a ShoutCast server, streaming mp3s 24/7. Performance is very good, with low CPU utilization and no bottle-necks or slow-downs whatsoever.
Summary: - Why you bought it because a friend recommended it to me, since he has one of the same and has very good resutado - What you like most about it AM3 is dual core 2.9 - Whether or not you would buy the product again yes, but for lack of money I want to risk buying a used
Summary: The price was attractive and the processor is very fast. Runs very stable. Hooked up with the Gigabyte MA785GM and 8 GB of ram and it breezez through all task I put it through. Have not tried to overclock yet as I usually like to run my systems as cool as possible. AMD offers more for the Dollar.
Summary: Its more than enough CPU to handle my original intention for it. I'm using it as the brains behind my (fairly) new HTPC and it performs admirably. Currently I have XBMC running on top of Windows 7 x64. Its able to handle play back of 1080p video, including Blueray, and 5.1 audio without any hiccups, stutters, and it stays at a very comfortable 40c (+/- 1 or 2 degrees) even after hours of use.
