It pays, the risk is not very big and can get a lot.

Summary: I bought the processor to improve performance of an old computer. It is the cheapest way. Inscription on the processor does not have to correspond to the real situation, I had a bad experience before.
Summary: I bought a xp2600+ 2.13ghz chip, so i'm not sure why they want me to wright this review. That being said, it is the fastest 266mhz chip you can get, so if your old mobo supports it, get it. It raised my WEI on the processor from 2.6 to 3.4(my old chip was a xp2000+).
Summary: mi diverto a cambiare le cose al mio computer .. ho cambiato per fare esperienza .. la cpu sta andando proprio su questo case .. proprio per i prezzi cosi buoni si può giocare e sperimentare 10 anni fa non era possibile -- grazie DD
Summary: I've had almost no problems with this product, the temp of the proc is stable and the system in general runs okay, I do not have alot of extras on my computer though, I run Windows Server 2003 on it and have had a stable system from day one.
Pros: Fast, Cheap, reliable
Cons: Does not work with every single piece of software, some require a intel based chipset
Summary: This is about my 12th processor and I buy nothing but AMD. For gaming, AMD is the best and much cheaper than comparable Pentiums. I have not encountered a problem with any of the AMD processors I've purchased. Installation is a snap and the documentation is excellent for the noobie. They stay plenty cool with the OEM heatsink and fan.
Pros: AMD, stable, ease of installation, great documentation, warrenty, and price.
Summary: I purchased the 2700 XP to replace my aging 2000 XP without upgrading my motherboard (ASUS Nforce 2). The performance/price ratio sold me as the next step up (2800 XP) was $40 more for only a couple of framerate difference. Everything from games to the boot sequence is noticably quicker. This is the best choice for a budget upgrade imo. It was only $99 at New Egg and now I won't have to upgrade again for a few years to an Athlon 64.
Pros: good performance for a low price, easy installation
Summary: Installation was simple and successful by following the excellent illustrated guide that was included in the box. Everything went smoothly and it is working well. The 2700+ was priced at around $100, which was lower than the Athlon or Sempron 2400, 2500 or 2600, so this is a bargain. The benchmarks show that it beats a 2.6 P4 and it is priced about the same as a 2.4 Celeron, so the price performance is hard to beat right now.
Pros: Complete package with installation instructions, heat sink and fan. Great price performance
