Summary: Description references Intel Item number of a Intel branded Boxed processor. Picture shows an Intel Branded boxed processor. The item that arrived was not an Intel Boxed processor. It had no Intel box as shown. No Intel documentation or warranty. No Intel branded instructions. This ad was clearly misleading, since this is not the Intel Branded box. An since it came with no description or warranty materials, I can only hope I got the processor that was described.
Summary: I use a GTX 550ti 1GB($99), this E5500($55) and 4GB($60) DDR2-800Mhz on cheap G41($45) and 500W PSU w/(23AMP on the 12v) ($20) ~ $279 for a media center that plays the latest titles with an Xbox controller, and is pretty quiet when idle, and only a whisper otherwise. Currently playing through Rage on 1080 with the Dual-Core hack, it runs flawlessly. It sucks at Transcoding.

I am more than satisfied with it for less than hundred bucks - especially with a 6.9 Win 7 score. I overclocked it with no problem at 3.5. It has more overhead, but my wife would never notice anyway, and it's pretty zippy at that speed. It seems about comparable in speed to a Phenom II X2 545, perhaps a tad slower.
