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: 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: 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: Good processor this is the third I purchased for my office and they seem to be all working well. My system does not bogg down during multi tasking.Is able to keep up as my old computer was a Pentium and seemed to make my day longer.
Pros: Easy to install. Good processor for the price.
Cons: Had some early problems with the motherboard recognizing this product.
