This review is from: AMD Duron 1.8 Applebred Single-Core 1.8 GHz Socket A DHD1800DLV1C Processor
Its stock speed is close to its top speed, so an overclocking board is not required to squeeze out extra MHz. It was a great buy when it first came out.
It's extremely slow compared to modern CPUs. Also, it doesn't include a heatsink/fan.
Now that we're going into October, 2006, Sempron 64 and Celeron D prices are too low to justify saving a few measly dollars on a Duron. Together with a heatsink/fan, this will put you back at least $xx, which is darn near Athlon 64 prices. The only possible situation where I would recommend buying this is if you had to replace a dead socket A CPU, and even then I'd caution against it in most cases. If you do choose to get it, though, Newegg's the way to go.
