5 out of 5 eggsGREAT Processor on a budget!!!

Pros: Came across this processor bout 2 years ago when planning a new build but didn't want to splurge. Given the price, this CPU is a sweet deal for any desktop build that will satisfy the needs of most multitask users. I normally have a good amount of stuff going across my desktop and I can say that I have never had a hiccup with this CPU!! Mainly web browsers with mult tabs, music player, Router & switch simulators, large PDFs ect...I'm not a big PC gamer except for RTS so cannot rate on high level gaming.

Cons: None so far... 2 ears and strong :-)

Other Thoughts: Dropped it in a Biostar TA790GX 128M with 4GB of G-Skill F2-8500CL5 DDR2 1066 and a copy of Vista 64 = Happy camper.

If looking for a budget CPU to get the job done then you can't go wrong.

5 out of 5 eggsgets the job done

Pros: plays crysis 1/2, cod mw/mw2, and several other games with surprising efficiency. multi-tasking is a breeze.

Cons: lacks the oomph to play black ops without minor lag.

Other Thoughts: could be running cooler if i wasn't using my stock heatsink from my amd sempron 3000+ 1.6ghz single core cpu...bought this minus the heatsink, stock HS has worked so far

4 out of 5 eggsAMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition Kuma 2.8GHz

Pros: - Black Edition (unlocked multiplier)

Cons: - Not as overclocking friendly as you would expect, don't expect too much out of this CPU.

Other Thoughts: well apparently i bought the last one newegg had, now its deactivated. really wish I bought a triple core but I didn't plan to buy a new motherboard at the time.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Budget Enthusiast Processor

Pros: Unlocked multiplier is great. Can get 3.0 stable at 1.325. But more than that, using the AMD Overdrive, I set up a profile to radically underclock the PC when I need it in standby/download mode. I can reduce the multiplier to minimum 5x (1 Ghz) and drop the voltage stable down to 0.825.

Cons: Hardly any cons. Make sure to get a motherboard that supports 1066 DDR2. Also invest in a good motherboard for the overclocking (and in my case, underclocking). Doesn't have to break the bank, but you'll thank yourself for spending a little bit more.

Other Thoughts: This is really a con of my motherboard, and not the processor. Make sure to spend a little more and get a decent motherboard if you want a higher stable overclock. But for a budget build, well worth it. Make sure to get 1066 DDR2 RAM with this processor, it gets decent boost in ram performance from it over the 800 DDR2. (If you get a motherboard with a radeon Integrated Graphics, you can crossfire the IGP with your Radeon Card for a budget boost in video performance.)

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, So good

Pros: Quiet, fast, works well with 4gb ram and m3n78 mobo

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: would be nice if thermal paste was included. 6 bucks for a 1.5 oz tube is kind of a rip off

5 out of 5 eggsGreat chip!!

Pros: Put this in a gigabyte board for a small office server. WOW!! That L3 cache sure helps A LOT when multi tasking.

Cons: nada

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy again, but at the price/performance right now think I'd buy a Phenom II for a few bucks more for the 6MB L3 and higher FSB.

5 out of 5 eggscheap entry level cpu

Pros: Price, performance, warranty. Built the little brother a small gaming machine with this processor. For a small budget, this processor is the way to go.

Cons: Retail fans did not cool this processor well in my small antec case. UPS damaged the cpu even in the retail package. Way to drop the ball UPS. Newegg recovered the fumble though with great customer service though.

Other Thoughts: Buy an aftermarket CPU cooler.
