Summary: I also got this processor because of the Lifehacker budget building article. I built a computer for my aunt and her husband last year and it has so far met my expectations very well. I'm considering using this processor again to create a hosting PC for local media and files.
Summary: It was great until it stopped working. The CPU lasted a total of 3 months under low load and temperature. Up and died one day and the MB wouldn't even give error codes with a diagnostic board inserted. Now real thrilled.
