Summary: I bought this chip largely based on all the good reviews posted on amazon.com. It worked out well. My boys are playing the new star wars game (SWTOR). And this chip makes a big difference - no lag, faster loading times, etc. Highly recommended!
It gives good performance for light duty computers

Summary: It dramatically improved my desktop's performance. My desktop starts up faster and all applications run faster. CPU normally runs cool at around 20 to 24 degree C. It was a good investment. I think I don't need another desktop for few more years. My desktop is Acer Aspire T660 originally came w/ Pentium D 2.8ghz running Windows XP Home 32 bit.
Summary: As the processor chosen to upgrade an older system with a Pentium Dual Core D930@3.45Ghz the difference was well worth it. An approximate 35% difference when compared with the overclocked version of the D930 at stock speed. The stepping of this processor (SL9T9) is the 10w idle state cpu making it a great CPU for reducing watt consumption. A good upgrade for the system.
Summary: Lot's of bang for the buck. This Core2Duo is great for system builders. Most folks don't need an expensive Quad-core. Fine choice for just about everything one would need in a desktop PC for a wide variety of tasks and applications. Good choice for game players with an appropriate video card. Recommend to use at least 2Mb RAM on the mobo for optimum performance.

Summary: i always buy Intel CPU's although i gotta give AMD some credit, they are putting out some CPU's lately, but i am still Intel!! This Dual-Core does the job it was bought for. Used in a starter computer for elderly couple's 1st piece of "New Technology", so more than enough for them. I like the speed, is able to handle a good workload with plenty of memory with it. Wouldn't hesitate to buy one again!!
Summary: Unless you're doing some extreme gaming or running a virtual system, you will not notice a performance difference when using this processor. This Processor will allow you to complete daily tasks such as reading email, typing papers, going online and will even run some video games. This processor when combined with 2gb of ram will run windows 7 flawlessly.
