The new E8400 is a very impressive processor and the fact that it can be purchased for the same price as an E6750 is remarkable. Although the E8400 is clocked at 3.0GHz like the E6850, it will actually be replacing the E6750 at $183 US. The E6850 will be phased out by the E8500, while the E6550 will

I've owned this processor since it came out almost 3 years ago and as of the end of 2010 it can still handle anything I throw at it. Right now, I'm using it in a "home made" server running ESXi 4.1, with 8gb DDR2 memory. It easily handles what I'm currently running, which is: 2x Windows 2008 Server R2, 2x Windows 7, 2x Windows XP and 3-4 Linux Distro. As long as you have a few HDDs to share the load, ESX will run smooth with this processor.
Had this for around a year. It handles the games I play greatly. Also this one overclocks pretty well for extra performance. Since not many applications use quad core fully, this one still gives plenty of performance for casual users.
I bought this for my system 2 years ago. I have yet to have any problems. I overclocked this baby to 3.6 without problems. It runs windows 7 without any problems. I'll be upgrading my system to an i5 and giving this to my brother.
Installed on a Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L motherboard. Installed XP Pro OS. This computer was built to run some older software which won't benefit much from more than 2 cores, so this speedy processor works great. Running 24/7 for 6 weeks, no issues, heat problems, etc. Stock HSF, no over-clocking.
awsome cpu, Make sure you use thermal paste and good heat sink, and fans to keep this sucker cool. fast as you choose handles far cry 2 with no problem. Mind you I need a better video card.... here I come shopping again! ooooh and I want some ram too...
