Pros: Of course coming from a 7 year old Sony Vaio, anything is going to look good....but wow! This CPU is just super quick. At this price, it makes this really hard to pass up when looking to build a new system. In my eyes, AMD has surpassed Intel. Intel might bench better, but for the money, the 955 is such a better deal.....it's no contest.
Overall Review: Get one, you wont be sorry. I don't overclock, but from what I understand, it's very easy to do so. Lot's of head room. I paired it with an Asus mobo and windows 7. Works like a charm.
Pros: You get what you pay for, in this case, I paid for decent ddr3 ram for my budget system....and thats what I got. It does the job and is solid all the way around. Nothing flashy, but enough to do the job. It's stable and looks pretty cool as well.
Cons: none so far.
