Summary: Fast shipping, checkout showed it might show up by the 21st and got it four days before then. Went from a sempron 3500 single core which was just about as fast as a dog taking a nap. Came with the cooler as well which I didn't expect so that was even better of a deal for me. Thanks a lot!
Summary: Ok, I have to say, that this processor is very cool, but the best way to enjoy it is with an 64 bit OS, which is still difficult and I don't know why... There's some problems with windows and the compatibility of the programs (I have to say Windows Xp), I haven't tested my processor on Vista or...
Summary: Dunno about other ppl's rigs,but running at 2.6GHz oc with my system it scores a 7.2 in Windows 7.
Pros: Everything! 2.3GHz which i have EASILY been able to oc to 2.6/2.8+ for a steady year so far. Never had a issue with running multi apps or any type of gamming i throw at it! At the time i bought this my MoBo only supported up to a 95w processor which was a BIG selling point for me considering its ...
Cons: Runs cool and quiet for me, but if you plan on clocking this you might want to think about a afterstock cooler. But its like that for pretty much everything so not rly a con.
Pros: This is an excellent CPU. I purchased it to replace a failing CPU in one of my PCs. This model doesn't have the TLB bug of its predecessor the 9600 and at 95 Watts, it uses less power than 125 Watt models. If you want a good work horse, then this is the processor to get.
Summary: I have to say I am really impressed with these parts. I had an AMD 5600+ Dual core processer and a GeForce 8800 graphics cards and life was pretty bad. I upgrade my processor to an AMD Quad Core 9650 (for about $120.00) only 2.3 GHz, mind you, and to a Gigabyte 260 896I graphics card (for about...
Pros: Great Processor for the money made a BIG difference from my AMD 5600+ 2.9ish GHz processor I do not care what the others say about the lower Ghz speed!
Cons: I should of purchased this sooner for just over $100.00
Summary: If you want to built a buget box that really performs,this can't be beat. Scores a 7.0 in windows 7
Pros: Cheap. Works great w/Asus 750I Mobo and dual asus 9600 GSO's. Built my grandsons a box for Christmas and they love it. Complete system for less than $800 including Win 7 and a 19" flat panel monitor.
Summary: Well this is my first amd computer that i built from the ground up, ive built lots of intel computers, owned a few amds that i bought from a friend, or was barebones. Im really happy with the overall performance of this cpu and my computer. specs.
Pros: seems really quick and powerful, especially for the price, you just cant beat the price for a quad core processor. Everything works like it should, no plans of overclocking but it is fast and its cheap. Works great in my htpc, plays full hd with no problems.
Cons: cpu heatsink and fan are kind of lame, the fan is quite loud and provides no surrounding airflow. I would like to have some more cache but hey you get what you pay for.
