I was going to wait to upgrade till windows 7 came out but I Was getting bored with my Athlon 64 3200+. I upgraded to this and I am a little dissappointed with the performance but it more than gets the job done, the only time I felt I am let down is when I play certain levels of crysis and it stutters here and there on high settings at 1280x1024... it is a bottleneck on my Radeon 4850. I have to say though, because of the ridiculously low price tag this is excellent value! I got it for 90$! If you are building a sytem with a Radeon 4850 or less and you need to pinch every penny, then id recommend this, otherwise, go intel.
I bought this processor about a month ago and I must say its well worth the money. It runs very fast but you will need at least 2 gbs of ram and a good vid card to run any new games resonably. Not recomended for hard core gamers but as long as you dont care if you will have to turn down the settings a little then it shouldn't matter.
I got this for a family member for Christmas. This was a very cheap upgrade and i was surprised how well it ran for the price. I would recommend it if you are looking into saving a few bucks on a new built. 2x 3.0Ghz for 99$ was a steal. As always with these processors, stock cooler isin't the best.
My friend chose this CPU for his new build. I was happy to see they included a larger stock HSF with the processor but that is probably how they got to 3.1ghz so this probably isn't going to be a good overclocker. Haven't tested it out though since it isn't mine to play with.
Well, I have to said this is a great cpu is you don't have much budget. I build the whole system within 500 with this cpu. 8800gts and so on... I don't see much different when running things compare to my Q9450. Well I can tell the different by running testing program on them. Well, buy this if you don't have money to burn. Ohhh, by the way, not good for overclocking..
This cpu is fast enough for most application you want to run. Im not using it for gaming. XP load very fast with this baby. I put it on Asus M2A-VM without any problem. The heatsink is bigger then the 5000+ and very well build.
Scored this processor for $89 on the boxing day sale. I am quite satisfied so far. The intention was to build a budget system, and I feel I am getting a great value out of this processor considering the price. It may not be the fastest or most efficient out there, but compared to the core 2's i spent nearly half the price. I threw this in an ASUS M2A-VM mobo btw, with no issues. I am not overclocking or anything like that.
Bought this just to try it out. Running it at 3.4Ghz with 1.52V. Core Temps 19 and 21 on idle and 36 and 39 load On Water. Price/performance is great. Would of been nice to get 3.5-3.6Ghz out of it but to much voltge wold of been required/ my motherboard may be the issue.
