AMD Sempron 64 2800+ - Sempron 64 Palermo Single-Core 1.6 GHz Socket 754 62W Processor - SDA2800BXBOX
AMD Sempron 64 2800+ - Sempron 64 Palermo Single-Core 1.6 GHz Socket 754 62W Processor - SDA2800BXBOX

Pros: MAMA MIAAAA!!! This little guy comes stock at 1.6GHz. I set RAM divider at 133, 3x HTT, 300 "fsb" and BOOOOOMMM 2.4GHz, stock cooling, stock vcore, 4783 3dmark2k5 cpu score....thats Athlon 64 3500+ territory!!! My goodness this is one hell of a value. If you are reading this and were thinking of building a 754 system...stop now and BUY IT before they sell out or something

Cons: Cons? what cons?

Overall Review: idle around 28c, full load around 36c. unbelievable cpu

Whoa billy!!!

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 1.9 GHz Socket AM2 65W Processor - ADO3600DDBOX
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 1.9 GHz Socket AM2 65W Processor - ADO3600DDBOX

Pros: Still kind of surreal that X2 dual core CPUs are now going for this low! It was too good to pass up. 2.8GHz Orthos stable 3 hours in and still going. Thats faster than a stock E4400 easily, and near E6600 stock in comparitive speed for MUCH less than half the price!

Cons: It doesnt tie my shoes

Overall Review: a 900Mhz overclock, a 2.8GHz brisbane w/ 2x512k is about X2 5200+ speeds. Also good if you have an AM2 board, you can upgrade next year to AMDs new architecture chips "Barcelona/Agena" Quad cores.

Great card

GIGABYTE GeForce 6800GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card GV-NX68G256D-B

Pros: 12 pipes, 256MB of 256bit DDR3 memory and Shader model 3.0/HDR. Got this card when it was on sale for 185. Amazing card for its price. Upgraded from 6600GT to this and there is a huge difference. I overclocked this puppy to 490 core, 1.15 memory(can easily do 1.2 but I dont wanna stress the memory too much just yet) and its screaming.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: This card will play any game you want at 1024 resolution on high for this year easily. I'll be upgrading sometime in 2007 for a DX10 card.

Comments: Great card. Paid 125 for it. I have it oced at 420c and 670 memory!!! At these speeds its faster than a 9800 pro and with better newer tech (SM 3.0). Great buy.

Comments: wow this card is great for those on a budget. I play COD competitively and i used to play with a 9200se 64 bit around 50fps. Now with this card i get 100+ constant!!!! unbelievable bang for the buck. Havent tried any overclocking as its already overclocked, and right now i dont have to
