Summary: I purchased this processor to replace my AMD Athlon XP 2000+. I did not know I was going to need to replace the mainboard later when I tried to update the bios and even though I got a success screen it stuck on a black screen on reboot, oh well.
Summary: I bought because I wanted to upgrade an old computer, with the fastest processor for that motherboard. I worked very good, more fast, twice cache than the older I had on that computer. Good product, excelent seller. My only difficult was to put termal grease.
Summary: I been looking for AMD processor to match my motherboard. The CPU purchased works as claimed by the seller. Works according to manufacture specifications and performance is outstanding so far.
Summary: Even though I bought it used, it seemd to be a very good Processor. I am very pleased with the way it works and that it upgraded my computer and added way more speed to it than it already had, i am very pleased with it's functionality and speed, I hope for a long time use with this Processor.
Excellent upgrade option. Overclocks well and can handle some new software.

Summary: Extremely good chip. The one I got can overclock to 2.4 GHz at stock voltage by raising the FSB. Pretty much the best Socket A processor in terms of value - the 3200+ costs more because it was the fastest Athlon XP ever released. Back in the day when this was released, AMD dominated Intel.
Small price to pay for such a noticeable speed difference! Well worth it!

Summary: I bought this processor to upgrade from an Athlon XP 2200. The 3000 not only has a faster clock speed but also a faster front side bus. The speed difference is definitely noticeable. Everything loads faster from programs to web pages. It was definitely worth the super low price to upgrade.
