Summary: Great CPU still kick to modern games, running windows 8 giving a WEI of 6.3, 5.9, 7.0, 7.0 and 5.3 on a system with a C2D E8200 4GB ddr2 667, 6670 1GB ddr5 and a SATA I hard drive. Working great.
Summary: Got this to build a PC for my kids from spare parts I had laying around the house. Overall it was a pretty good processor, though I had thought it would get a little better rating than it did. Don't know that I would buy it again for the money, should have gone with an e7500.
6 mega bit cache and 45 nano bit technology is where its at

Summary: I have purchase a few of these core duos and I like the 6 mega bite cache THAT is what makes all the difference the larger cache. The chip is able to have the memory right on the chip and that speeds things up because it don't have to get it all the way from the memory sticks. At least thats the way I under stand it. Also the the 45 nano bit technology shrinks the size of the processor and that means cooler temps and faster processing. Also it uses a lot less energy.
worked from start and just keeps going tank yiu so much

Summary: Was wanting a quad core but found this and was a better buy for me and my build was able to buy me 2 2tb hard drives for my build and hdmi video card so I cold get my media center going no more dvds working on getting bluray so no more disk at all
Summary: I was debating if I should buy this processor as I had a friend who had told me to buy a quad processor. I have to say that this processor has impressed me with speed and it never faults. This is the best processor I've ever had, for gaming, running multiple programs, it stays cool and I haven't OC'd as I don't need to. If you are on a limited budget but still wants some power in your CPU, this is the one for you.
