Summary: While not the latest and greatest processor, It fits the bill for my son's needs. It's still reasonably fast. It allows fast computing for the internet, word processing, music and videos. The only negative, it will not accept Windows 64. Real good price.
Summary: I found it at a really great price. When the item showed up I was a little scared because it was wraped in clear packaging tape. That generates 0.0012mv of static electricity. The foam was antistatic, but that mean it will no generate static. Static still could pass though the foam.

Summary: Where do these guys come from? If someone on here is even remotely considering paying $513 + shipping for this chip, please don't! You can purchase the latest Motherboard/CPU combo AND RAM for less than that!
Excerpt: If you need a fast chip for day to day work and some low to medium level gaming this is the chip for you. It runs at a very low and stable temperature even under load, which will improve the stabilty of the chip. It also is very easy to install, including a installation guide.
Pros: Cost effective, stable and easy installation

Pros: Rapid processor, can use in Socket A motherboard, FSB speed
Cons: Runs hot, need Ram upgrade to take advantage
Excerpt: The AMD XP3200+ is currently AMDs only processor capable of running on 400Mhz FSB motherboards without the need for overclocking, the processor is a socket A and you will need a compatible motherboard .
Pros: A worthy cheaper rival to Pentium 4
Cons: The AMD heatsink and fan is not good enough, and hard to attach to the motherboard
Excerpt: Having recently decided to purchase a server PC for my home network, I decided that rather than spending circa £50 on an average processor for the new PC, I would upgrade my Athlon XP 2800+ Barton CPU to a new 3200+ for only £50 extra (the 3200+ retails at around £100) I bought the OEM version of...
