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: This thing is great for a building a budget CPU. Speed is blazing fast The stock heatsink that comes with it is pretty loud, I switched over to a zalman 9700 and was able to get a stable overclock of 4.2ghz. I'd definitely recommend AMD products.
Summary: ordered this along with the arctic silver 5 compound, didnt know this would come with its own heatsink, you must use THAT heatsink it comes with for 3 years for the warranty, alot better then stock heatsinks, im happy with this buy, very fast, scores 7.4 on windows index not overclocked.
