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.
Summary: After weeks of ordering parts to build my own PC I came across a problem.....It didnt work! I tested every single component individually in a different computer and the only thing that didn't work was this Processor.
Great price. Excellent performance for entertainment,

Summary: I bought this CPU when my Quadcore CPU died on my home entertainment PC. This is very effective for that purpose, I overclocked it and it was even better. Great replacement, low energy consuming and affordable CPU.
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.
Summary: This is a great processor for anyone looking to build a moderately fast PC on a tight budget. at 2.9 GHz and only 2mb of L2 cache, it is not blazing fast but it will allow you to multitask with no problem while using everyday programs such as Microsoft Office.
Summary: The AMD Athlon II X2 245 is snappy processor good enough for your usual daily task, cost and performance benefits are realized when paired of with a good mobo with AMD chipset, I used the GIGABYTE MA785GMT-UD2H which is a very nice solid m-ATX board with 2GB of memory.
