Summary: This processor offers a big bang for the buck. I am currently ordering its successor, the E5200. Pentium dual core processors are inexpensive, but they still have enough performance to be useful.
Pros: This processor is fast enough for most uses. I managed to overclock mine to 2.8ghz. It runs very cool with my aftermarket cooler. Many people have been able to overclock this processor over 3 ghz.
Summary: Was a great upgrade over my previous CPU, a P4 Prescott 3.0 GHz. I was expecting only an improvement for multi-tasking, but even single applications are improved noticeably without any overclocking.
Summary: for the price, this is about the best deal you can find; if you're looking for a mid-range home computer, this processor is great; just don't expect it to be able to do heavy-duty computing as fast as more expensive processors.
Pros: For such a low price, this CPU was excellent. At simple tasks, its just as fast as any processor, and multitasks great.
Cons: The 1MB cache really limits its abilities for gaming; This processor was never intended for gaming, though.
Summary: really fast, overclocked to 3.33ghz fsb @ 13333mhz @ x10 multiplier on air, 18secs 1mb superpi on my p5n-d mobo running corsairs @ 1000mhz, and 12,220+ 3dmark06 on a single 9600gt, getting my 2nd card next week :).
Pros: can't beat this chip for the price. and as always, newegg has the pricing and shipping options that makes shopping a joy.
Cons: only 1mb cache but who cares, it's fast when overclocked.
