Looking to speed up your computer, upgrade your RAM first

Summary: I bought this to upgrade an older AMD dual core processor (on my CQ5210F) . The install process was fairly easy and strait forward. I did it myself in under an hour. My computer is somewhat faster, but nothing like when I upgraded my RAM from 3 GBs to 4.
Summary: The processor came in speedy time, though the packaging used appeared reused. It came with everything it said it had and worked perfectly, The thermal glue that came with it was just the right amount though I wish I could of it in an appropriate applicator instead of a awkward plastic pouch.
Summary: I purchased this item because it was the best upgrade for my computer, and the highest level processor for my motherboard. I originally had a AMD Athlon II X2 240 Dual Core processor, and after purchasing this one, I accidentally bent most of the pins.
Summary: I did not expect a ton out of this processor. If you need a 95 watt processor for whatever AMD motherboard you may have this was a good option and I would get another one if I had too,. If it were anymore you would be better off getting anew motherboard and processor.
Summary: This is a fairly good processor, but most likely aimed towards an htpc rather than a gaming rig due to being 95w. I've been using it for a year and it has served me well. I managed to overclock my 945 to 3.8ghz on air and the performance gains was quite noticeable in certain games such as starcraft...
