great deal!!! THANKS NEWEGG!!!
Pros: picked this up to upgrade a asus p4p800 e-deluxe mb with 2 gigs of dual channel 4003200. replaced a 2.53 running at2.8, only letting the memory run at 533 max. from day one it has been at 3300 mgrtz with hyperthread running. running a modded aircooled case, idles at 35c and full load 46c. came wrapped in bubble wrap within a cpu case, i purchased the extended warranty, so i wouldn't have to deal with intell if there were issues. runs fear, prey, farcry, flatout 1&2, gtr2 without a hitch. JUST GET IT, make sure you're board will run it.
Overall Review: none
lol, One more review
Pros: Comes with the original Gateway restore disc. I corrupted vista messing with the wireless, I threw the gateway rstoration disc in and did a complete restore, got rid of alot of the gateway glut programs that drag the machine down. Since this is an OEM disc on an OEM motherboard it doesn't ask for the key, just installs. So much faster now. Super nice purchase.
Cons: Vista, has alot of nice features, just so particular about what it will hookup to wirelesslly.
Overall Review: LOL, should have bought twice the memory to install. currentlly 2 gigs, wants 4. I'm getting a crash course in Vista.
Pros: huge glossy screen. 120 gig sata hardrive, lots of extra features. It comes with the system backedup on a recovery partition. The box lists the cpu as core duo 1.8. This was brand new, not refurbished.
Cons: I'm having trouble with the wireless seeing new networks, but that may be vista, worst case is get a twenty dollar wireless card, still a great bargain!
Overall Review: Newegg is the best and only place to buy. Super customer service!!
just buy it!!!!
Pros: i bought this over a year ago, never once regretted it!!!stepped from 40 watt cre*tive to this beast. i watch alot of movies and the 5.1 is awesome.
Cons: it will get you kicked out of an apartment for the bass,lol.
Overall Review: these are getting very hard to find, just buy it now!!!
