Works great, but Quad Core CPUs are overkill for most users.

Summary: I build a new desktop computer every four or five years, and leading up to my Winter-Spring '10 build, I was hot for the Quad Core. I knew there was a fairly limited number of programs that could use all four cores, and that even those programs rarely did. But still, I wanted Quad!
Summary: Excellent processor!! My only concern is that I have not been able to overclock it beyond 3.2 GHz, but still it has solid performance, very low core temp even if overclocked, and works like a charm!
Summary: This was the perfect upgrade for my Pentium. I can run Crysis really smooth on High level. Granted it's not an i5 or i7 processor, but the ease of use, and upgrade in speed for my computer is great. I can run Power Point, Word, and web browser (multiples) without very much lag.
