It's faster, cheaper, more stable, and much cooler than P 800 line.

Summary: This is one of the better dual core processor's made, for it's price point. Although it does run a bit hotter, and uses 40 more watts of power than the D 945, it's considerably cheaper, yet still much cooler than the previous Pentium D 800 line. You don't have to purchase expensive water coolers to keep it from over heating, and over clocks very well. Overall a great buy!
Summary: Certainly not the latest technology but is fast and there are a lot of new and used boards that will accept this CPU. Build a relatively fast and cheap system with this CPU as the first step. Runs a little warmer than the new ones so use a proper heat sink/fan and it should be trouble free!
Intel Pentium D 940 3.2 GHz Processor - Win7 XPmode
7 December 2009
Summary: Since this chip uses a 775 socket it fits many motherboards. I used it to replace a Pentium D 935 that is similar except that it lacks hardware virtual technology. Intel VT is required to run Windows 7 in XPMODE. WinXP appears to run as fast in a virtual enviornment now as it did in the original system before Windows 7. Everything is "snappy" compared to running in a software virtual system. All other specifications are similar to the old CPU: Dual Core, 3.2 GHz, etc.
Summary: I purchased this processor at the same time my friend bought a processor and mine is running like a champ. His has had problems non stop. I would recommend this processor to any one who doesnt want to run a dual core. You will get what you pay for. Thanks Price Grabber.
Pros: Everything about it. It stays cool it runs fast. What more can you ask for. Well maybe the 3.4 Ghz. HaHa!!
Cons: None, and ive been running it non stop for about three months. When its not taking a nap...
Summary: I install this pentium D 3.2gb cpu with asus p5wd2 premium motherboard, everything go smooth without problem. I try to overclock to 3.8gb, My computer working perfect without any overheating and install OS just take 15min, this pentium D 3.2 cpu is brilliant, I will recommend this cpu for other user.
Summary: I installed this processor on Gigabyte 8I945PLG motherboard. Easy installation was easy. I have been using it for last four months without a problem. I burn and played DVDs and CDs with no problem. I reinstalled OS several times without any problem. My computer never got stuck. I am not a gamer so I don't how it is with gaming. I recommend this processor for the price it selling now.
Pros: Dual Core with 3.2 GHz speed, Comes with heatsink and fan
