Research everything twice, buy once, push it to the limit

Summary: Intel makes great chips, I needed to increase an old system's abilities and was limited to a dual core processor. Having that extra Front Bus Speed helps immensely. I removed an old and tired E4400 that couldn't hack it anymore. I was worried about the E6850 being used, in my case there wasn't any reason to go to the extreme with a E8500,E8600. Being a light user this processor is exceeding my needs.
Summary: Bought this little chip because I seen it was a good match with the GTS450 Graphics card. Have yet to install the card but originally had an E2200 @ 2.2 GHz Dual-Core and it was completely crud. Horrible FPS on any game. Got this little CPU for 20 bucks and instantly improved performance in everything. Gaming FPS, computer response time, and everything.
Summary: this is the second core 2 duo 3 ghz I have bought on ebay.i I refurbish a lot of computers for friends and others.the intell core 2 duo is priced very reasonable and I always upgrade to least expensive but very good specs.i have been doing computer repairs since windows 95 came out.i sure am glad there is a ebay to shop and sell on.
