This processor is very much worth it if you have a pre 3500+/low end core 2 duo system! I pieced together a half decent system for 240 bucks: AM2 3800+, Asus M2N mobo, OCZ gaming RAM. Not to mention I using a 1950Pro 512MB ($180) with an OCZ 550W PSU (less than $100). I am able to hit 2.6Ghz with a slight voltage tweak on stock fan. 90FPS and greater on Counter-Strike Source (all maxed out except AA).
I used this in a system I built for a family member who was running an old 1.2 GHZ Celeron (with bad caps on the mobo). This will be more power then he will need for normal use. He doesn't game or do anything intensive so I wouldn't be surprised if it keeps him happy 5+ years.
I used this processor in building a starter dual core system for a family member. It almost paid for itself because of the free ground shipping for the entire order. It also costs under 70 dollars and is a dual core processor. While its not much of a dual core, it does more than it needs to in the system. I would have rather bought the 65 watt version but it didn't come with free shipping :)
Bought this for someone's new computer. They currently have an 800mHz Celeron, so this will definitely be an upgrade. It benchmarks very well for the price, doesn't get warm (in fact, the heatsink never feels warm to the touch) and was very reasonably priced. Simply put, I'm very impressed.
Using it for a HTPC and is able to play my 1080p .mkv videos fine with an overclock to 2.4ghz so its no problem. And when and if i decide to have the bluray/hd dvd drive in here all i need to do is plop in a nice videocard, and it should be able to do hardware decoding so for a HTPC its really good, and its why i bought one.
