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. I had to run test on the CPU before I installed it on the mother board I needed it for.
$500 for a used obsolete chip...your kidding right?

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! I'm a huge fan of AMD and I've been using them exclusively for over 10 years, but I won't pay that much for the latest, greatest chip AMD offers, let alone one that is as old as the Athlon XP line. Let's not forget this is a used chip too!
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. If you want a budget processor for gameing however this still is a good choice, it will smoothly run most games apart from the latest games such as DOOM 3 or F.E.A.R. But if ...
Pros: Cost effective, stable and easy installation
Cons: Will struggle on the very latest generation of games
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 . Processors running on higher FSB (front side bus) speeds tend to get a better response when processing information, this is a big plus to consider when looking to upgrade to a AMD XP3200+ processor for your computer system. On most of todays ...
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
AMDs Flagschiff aus dem Jahr 2004 - Ruderboot oder Luxusliner ?
5 March 2010
Summary: Einleitung Zur Abwechslung mal wieder ein CPU Bericht, es geht um den schon etwas angestaubten AMD Athlon XP 3200+ für den nicht mehr existierenden Sockel A/462 von AMD. Die CPU habe ich im Dezember 2004 für damals super günstige 128 € gekauft und im November 2007 für 110 € verkauft - Ein gutes Geschäft also ;). AMD hat die Produktion von den Sockel A CPUs sehr schnell beendet, nachdem man ab 2005 voll auf die neuen Sockel 754 und 939 setzte.
Pros: Sehr schnell
Cons: Hoher Stromverbrauch, heiss, kein 64 bit, single core
