GREAT Processor on a budget!!!

Comments: 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.

AMD 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.

Good 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.)

So 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
