Excellent value, and great for hi-def video playback.

Summary: Even if it isn't the fastest Quad Core out there, for the price, it is a very good one. Bought it to replace my old Dual Core, which was having a hard time rending HD videos, even with a newer graphics card installed. Popped this in, and haven't had any trouble yet...have some pretty hi-res material i watch, and the CPU load hasn't hit above 40% when watching, and it stays nice and cool. Always used Intel processors, and they generally don't let me down.
