You want a fast dual core, this is it. Fits well in my Asus M3N78-VM with the latest bios.

Well, if comparing it to my old single core, Sempron 2.2, it blows it out of the water. There's no comparison, period. ...

4 out of 5 eggsgood stuff

Pros: runs cool, never had any load problems despite running multiple DAW's and other audio software, and from time to time a game here and there. cheap too.

Cons: the fan on the heatsink is beginning to fail, i'm just replacing the whole heatsink/fan. sounds like a diesel engine half the time. however, this is after over a year and a half of near constant use, audio production and gaming etc, so i'm not complaining. it makes the monitoring software that came with it sound its' alarm and it scared the heck outta me the first time it happened.

Other Thoughts: it's the best budget processor out there

5 out of 5 eggsvery quick for the $$

Pros: 3.1 ghz stock, 2mb L2cache, low power consumption, AM3 to utilize DDR3 although it says supports upto 1333 on amd site it does not state that 1333 will be reduced to 1066 but still a good value.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: got this in a combo deal for a great price. scores 6.5 for windows experience on windows 7 ult 64bit.

5 out of 5 eggsVery fast

Pros: Built my first system with this CPU. Fastest system I've ever used. I don't do any gaming, but lots of heavy duty software development including running databases. I also bought 4 gigs of fast DDR3 - which I'm sure helps.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsreally fast!

Pros: I just upgraded a build I did about four years ago. This replaced an AMD AthlonX2 4000 and it blows it away!! It was the fastest I've seen XP install yet. Took less than half the normal time. I can't believe how fast this thing is and for such a low price!

Cons: Cheap heat sink, but I used it anyway. This is not a gamer build.
