Summary: I purchased this cpu used from Interweb, and there is a reason he has a 100% rating. In my opinion sellers do not get any better than this one. The item arrived promptly and was well packaged, then I received an email offering his assistance to install it.
Summary: Excellent. The PC I built with my own hands 12 yrs. ago died and I was heartbroken, but there was hope! On ebay I found many other wizards selling cpus and motherboards for old relics like mine and thru ebay was able to resurrect it to it's old self. Bravo ebay and it's enthusiasts!
Summary: This brought new life into an old computer. Just by replacing the original processor with this one more than doubled the speed. No other changes required. When the system was built CPU's were several hundred dollars each so while the motherboard could handle a faster CPU I couldn't afford it.
Well worth the minimal cost to breathe new life into an aging system.
