Summary: I plan on upgrading away from this processor someday, but as of now this thing is rocking my world combined with my Radeon HD 5670 1GB DDR5. I only have 2GB of DDR3 @ 1333mhz running on windows 7 64-bit. So far... smooooooooth sailin.
Pros: I just finished building my computer today. I already can tell that this CPU is worlds better than the Pentium D 3.4ghz, and scoffs at the Core Duo. I haven't even overclocked it and I don't know if I ever will. Whats the use if it does the job as is?
Cons: It isn't cheap enough ( bless my sarcasm ) .
