Summary: I ordered this cpu because I got a used amd motherboard from another website and that only had a 900MHz AMD Cpu. This cpu is actually slower than the original one that was installed in my motherboard cpu. It freezes up everytime you use the internet and the cpu runs hot over 70.C.
Summary: I purchased this processor to upgrade an older computer that I built 8 years ago. My original plan was to build a new PC, but when I evaluated my needs, I realized I could address my current issues without building a new machine since I use Linux.
Summary: I ordered this cpu to upgrade froma slower cpu for an older system that I wanted to revive. Job completed added that extra speed I needed to run newer applications and other goodies. The cpu itself was in great condition as promised and worked great!
Summary: I have built many machines, most with AMD processors and several with Intel processors. There is no need to purchase any other processor than an AMD. I have seen, time after time, the AMD processor is superior to Intel's processor- both performance and price.
Pros: Great speed to price ratio. Will easily out-perform an Intel machine at 2200Mhz.
