Got this for a budget build for my parents. Great little cpu, doesn't require much power and overclocks like a great. Running at 3.6mhz on stock cooling with less than 50C under load. Should last my parents 2-3years easily! Definitely a budget CPU though, since Core i7 are now out and higher end E8500+ are obviously better choice for gaming rigs.
Bought this for a budget build. Runs great, no problems at all. Nice upgrade from a Pentium 4. I recommend not using the stock hsf tho, they'll always be terrible in general. But this is a great cpu.
Working with ASUS P5Q Pro MB, with so many times try and fails, finally come to a running stable status at 3.2GHz, Vcc 1.22, with stock cooling 18C idle 45C under full load. it's a 20% increase over stock speed. very happy with it, consider the price under $150. if got extra money, go for E8000, at least 10%~20% performance increase than E7000, especially in 3D, multimedia, and game.

Well I build a budget build system with this cpu highly overclocked... At first the customer say it's lighting fast but latter on complain it isn't fast enough. What a joke.. I would say a real budget builder should got for AMD. Anyway it's a great cpu none the less..
