Summary: get yourself one of these with some nice cooling and an msi board easily stable @3ghz for years. I ran several stress tests and several reviews before attempting this. Runs all the games I throw at it quite nicely with a decent 9800GT nvidia graphics card and some dual channel RAM. Very nice CPU!
Summary: I bought this to test a used Asus P5KC motherboard I recently purchased. The processor worked well under most conditions. It's good for everyday computing but for the serious user, I would recommend a quad core or an i7 or i5.
Really, the old "State-of-the-Art" is all you need

Summary: I started late, I admit. I wasn't sure that the computer would become the in every home device that TV had become and Radio before that. I have since learned that there will be very few exceptions to this rule New tec that does what the old does and more, will ALWAYS be a sure bet!
Summary: Cheap little overclocker. Reached over 3GHz without raising volts and temps stay below 30c ideal and below 36c load on stock cooler. matched this up with a gts 250 and have a decent little gaming rig that will play all modern games with detail.
Excerpt: Even though this CPU is called a 'Pentium', it is essentially the same as its bigger brothers in the Core2Duo range. This means it is power efficient (and therefore quieter) and fast. The Pentium range has less 'Cache' - essentially on-board memory required for faster processing.
perfect for any low to high end machine, although avid gamers may want something with more cache

Excerpt: Intel wanted to make a processor that goes at the lower end of their core 2 range, and while brainstorming for names came up with the pentium dual core range. Although they are actually just standard core 2 processors with a cut down L2 cache and FSB speed, Intel chose this name because pentiums...
Excerpt: I recently purchased the Pentium Dual Core E2180 for my parents PC from ebuyer.com. I bought the retail version which comes with a fan for about £45. This price puts it at the low end of the scale in terms of Intel CPU pricing.
