4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This a great CPU. When equipped with a good graphics card, it can run most recent games like "Supreme Commander" and "Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault".

Cons: It can't run all applications on high setting but you can run them on medium to low settings so that you can actually play the game if you want to

5 out of 5 eggsfor the money

Pros: Great buy! I decided to finally make a AMD system to replace my ancient Intel 2.66 ghz P4......and wow, the performance boost on WOW and Half-life2 is incredible; upgraded my rig with Msi N9AG NEO2 and 2 gigs of Mushkin Mem and a cheap 500 watt power supply, with a 1950xt vid card for under 600 dollars with tax and shipping included! Runs cool even when playing DVD movies and when online on WOW...I am going to try overclocking next week!

Cons: Not as powerfull as the high end 2core processors....but big deal it runs all the programs I want ran perfectly!

Other Thoughts: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price/Performance Ratio

Pros: Works great even when Multi-tasking. Super Great product - you'll be surprised.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This A64 3800+CPU works better than another system I setup with a 3600+ X2. The X2 system has more memory than the A64 system but still the A64 works fantastic.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and powerful

Pros: This is a reasonably priced CPU, and still has decent power to run a computer. Runs cool depending on room temp.

Cons: If your place is hot the CPU will run hot

Other Thoughts: Runs fast with WINXP PRO 64-bit. Great AMD product.

5 out of 5 eggsOUTSTANDING

Pros: This CPU in my opinion is the best CPU outside of dual cores. Highly overclockable, and paired with the right hardware, can do pretty much everything.

Cons: 512 L2, no biggie. It's cheap.

Other Thoughts: I have this OCed to 3.00GHz@250x12. This has been running very stable for about a month, at 40C with stock cooling!!! AMD, keep up the good work.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Definitely better than the AMD 1.8ghz in my old computer. Menus seem more responsive, CPU intensive things like converting movies go faster.

Cons: None so far. Didn't come with l33t Arctic Cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Processor that could

Pros: Execellent Processor, The person that talking bout not running the ram should to know that only AM2 dual cores only run ddr 800mhz (pc6400)... this only runs 533mhz or 667.

Cons: If you need a true gaming machine or video encoding or full screen high resolution(1280x1024) HD video playback or any heavy processing tasks get a dual core..

Other Thoughts: GREAT PROCESSOR!!!, no cons.. im not using it for those tasks above but i did throw them at it and it was taking them on at 90-100% cpu usage (hehe). for the task that it can handle everything else than those mentioned above its grrrrrreat.

5 out of 5 eggsAM2 Starter

Pros: It runs cool with the stock fan/heatsink, its fast, the low price. I saw a large improvement with this over an AMD 939 2.0 and DDR memory.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: This is a cheap way into the tech of the future. The 939 socket is dead. Be ready for the great things to come from AMD with this processor.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Capable, Nice price

Pros: Very capable processor, can handle most tasks thrown at it, not a dual core, but it holds its own. runs fairly cool, 40 Celsus with stock fan, for video encoding and gaming need a dual core though.

Cons: none,

Other Thoughts: had to go with the 2.4GHZ, otherwise ur not getting full performance off the AM2socket, spend the extra 10-30 bucks an get this one instead of the lower speeds.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Processor

Pros: Good design - cool - I mean stays cool even at max usage. Also speed seems like almost double of Athlon 3000+ (32 bit); Windows boots in about half the time, but then it could be XP64 that also helps, and SATA 3 GBs.

Cons: Nothing big, except the cooling fan seems a little flimsy, like most Athlon original fans. And the memory is limited to 667MHz, even though I put in PC6400.

Other Thoughts: Really wanted the 5400, but too pricy for the moment - may be a year down the line, and that will also realize the full potential of PC6400 memory.
