Summary: If you want it as I did , and can probably afford it , buy it. I did over a year ago and would do so again. I can run all the programs I want - no problem !I BELIEVE YOU WILL EVEN RECEIVE A BETTER PRICE THAN I DID .
Summary: Unlocked all 4 cores with MSI motherboard and am overclocking to 3.85 ghz (17.5 x 220). Just a nominal overclock with this processor. I was up in the 4 ghz range but not stable with my video. I'm not well versed on fine tuning vga and memory settings. I had a quad core at 2.8 ghz and this is a very noticeable difference. Very zippy! A great upgrade!
