Summary: I bought the opteron 180 from m&d discounts great price got it fast and he or she is a very reasonable person to deal with if there are any issues. I wish they had other parts I needed for my old system. Thanks again
Summary: I was looking to upgrade a desktop computer the kids use in the house. Was an AMD 3500 , I wanted to upgrade to a multi-core CPU. The order through Amazon went smooth. Delivery was what was indicated at time of purchase (3-5days). The CPU was in a sealed AMD box.
Summary: This processor works super on my HP desktop. I was looking for a upgrade for my PC and decided to stick with AMD. Runs much cooler and faster than my Turion did. Did not even use the Fan that came with the Opteron, The old fan works just fine with this processor. Just use the cooler goop.
Summary: This processor will multitask until the cows come home. This thing was retailing for $750 at the beginning of 2006. It seems to have bottomed out at $300. It will take anything you can through at it, including games. When more games come out that utilize dual core, this processor will step up.
Summary: I have nothing but high praise for both the product and the seller. This processor was back in the day the best one you could buy for a 939 socket AMD motherboard. It's working perfectly and it was brand new has the box was still sealed.
