Upgrading a desktop to the dual core era with new cpu, motherboard and DDR3 ram. What a difference it makes over an ancient first generation P4. AMD provides a good value for the money. Yes, you can pay to have the big "I" name sticker or buy AMD plus RAM sticks of your choice for the same price as that blue labeled CPU.
Subtract one egg of rating due to the undersized stock heat sink. Barely sufficient for desktops in air conditioned offices. Underated heatsinks are supplied in most retail box CPU's from both AMD and Intel. Recommend a third party heat sink for rooms with wider temperature swings.
Overclocking? Never heard of it or even desire it.
