Fast, Inexpensive, and a really good choice for Upgrading an older system.

Summary: I work for the SFLCA, a nonprofit charitable organization that provides assistance and support to cancer patients and their family. We are an all-volunteer organization and we pinch and squeeze every penny we get until old Abe screams for mercy. The PC we use to run our web design and multimedia app's on is a 8 year old custom build based on a Gigabyte GA-MA785G-UD3H motherboard running 8gb of 800Mhz OCZ Ram, an AMD Radeon HD 56670 with 1Gb of DDR5, and an AMD Phenom X4...
Summary: I Had this processor in my machine for about 1 year, recently switched to a 1100t phenom II. The difference in processing power is minimal. Overclocked this processor is the fastest of all Phenom II CPU's.
Summary: new build with a 990 chipset, what can i say, amd rules. best price to performance cpu, and it overclocks to 4.2 gigs with an aftermarket cooler. hey the only cooler arctic cooling 90mm fan......so quiet.
Summary: The AMD 970 with the Asus PRO Socket AM3 motherboard is a super combo for an inexpensive desktop for video and audio processing. The Motherboard supports 6 SATA hard drives and crossfire video GPU's.
