Summary: The reason I purchased a good used one because I needed to test out to see if it was the processor or the graphics portion of the motherboard. It turned out that the graphics section went bad not the processor, but at least I knew that the processor was guaranteed to work, that made the testing easy. It was promptly sent and properly packaged.
Summary: I bought this processor used and installed it in an asus micro atx motherboard. Works like a charm for everyday things and for some lower demanding games like WoW and Oblivion. Very fast at surfing the net and editing photos. So far it has ran very cool and I've had no issues. For the cheap price of a used one, I would recommend it.
Summary: As the title states this CPU is a terrific buy if you'd like to have a high-end (yes i meant high-end) PC on a budget. even by now Feb-2008 it still is a decent processor on stock speeds. don't let the dual core name fool you this is a full core 2 duo but with crippled cache, yes i know the cache is important but when you look at the benchmarks the only REAL benefit of cache memory is in office applications (let me say where it is not required to have much power).
Excerpt: "Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 / 1.8 GHz processor is helpful for those people who want to buy good processor but in cheapest rate. It is a stripped down low cost version of the Core 2 Duo. The performance of the processor at stock speed is good. As it is a dual core processor, its multitasking performance is very good. You can compare this processor with other in the following link: http://reviews.cnet.com/processors/intel-pentium-dual-core/4540-3086 ...
Excerpt: "=== Performance === I thought that it would be best to talk out the performance of the processor first since this is what everybody is looking for with games and application becoming more demanding. The performance of the E2160 out of the box is quite slow at only 1.8GHz but this is where the beauty of this processor comes in, it is highly overclockable, I have mine running at 3.2ghz and it doesn't go above 60 degrees C. The small 1MB L2 Cache ...
Pros: Value for money, Performance, Easy to install
Cons: Small 1MB L2 Cache, Instructions are a little lacking
Excerpt: "...for consumers. In the past both Intel and AMD tried to dominate this market and so Intel was the first who launched a low cost processor called Celeron, architecturally different compared to a Pentium to ensure a small cost to produce but also with a significant lower performance (quite low performance especially at first models without L2 cache). In the following years AMD followed this trend and also launched another low cost processors called ...
Pros: Greatest value and performance at the lowest price, highly overclockable
Cons: Only 1MB L2 shared cache, performance hit in games
Conclusion: Es una excelente opcion, a precio mas que razonable por las prestaciones que brinda este producto. El unico inconveniente que encontrè, es el socket (775 LGA) que es medio complicado al momento de manipular el micro, el resto, 10 puntos.
