Summary: I used this CPU for my home theatre system and was amazed at the performance of this CPU, even though it only has 1Mb Cache it still browses, surfs plays movies, and never had any problems. Obviously not for gamming, if you want a cheap CPU for Gamming go with a Pentium Dual Core (3.0GHz/800FSB/4m cache) you can get those cheap on ebayor for alittle more $$, E6600 Core 2 Duo (2.4 GHz 1066FSB/4M cache) I have owned all and now I currently use My E6600 for BattleField Bad...
Summary: This processor flies. If you're into overclocking. I've had this baby for about a year and a half and without any issues can push it up to 3.4 G with a temp at 24 degrees c. at idle. This is my main computer brain and and would buy another one without any question.
Summary: Great processor when matched with a MSI G31TM-P21 FRYS Electronics has a great deal on them both. The processor is very overclockable! I wish Intel would of included a copper core heat sink but you cant get everything! I have gotten mine to 3192MHZ with a 266 FSB with stock cooling. For about $45 on ebay why would you pay more for the other processors? Gaming! The Celeron processors are made on the same silicone but the don't have as much L2 cache. What is that that?
Summary: This CPU is quite a nifty one for being called a Celeron, 1 MB cache might be on lower side, but it can handle pretty much everything thrown at it, and does support Virtualization. Worth every penny.
Summary: This little Intel dual-core CPU won't win any benchmarks, but it does perform adequately. It is made in 45nm, so it uses a lot less power than the older 65nm technology Core-based, socket 775 CPUs. I underclocked it to 2GHz, and built a system that sips only 35W. This is only about 5W more than an Intel Atom-based system, and this thing will whips its pants in terms of performance. The heat sink fan (HSF) is a bit of a joke and costs it a star.
