Decent CPU

Pros: Was fast as hell when I first got it, ran everything I threw at it. Even up to this year it was running GREAT. Let me explain the 4 eggs.

Cons: I have never experienced the slow death of a CPU until this one. I have had this CPU for about 6 years now and it has slowly died as far as running intensive programs. It no longer will play games unless they are from the 90's or are of 2d quality. It still runs great otherwise, but like I said, I've never experienced a CPU just give up on high processing.

Other Thoughts: Not sure you can buy this CPU anymore, nor would I suggest it anyways but it was great while it lasted.

Still working just fine. Moving to HTPC

Pros: I've head this chip for years now and it is still running fine.
Shows a 6.1 WEI and its the best upgrade available for AM2 motherboards.

I have this paired with a GTS 250 and it plays most games just fine. Plays HD video with no complaints.

My daughter had MCE, WMP, and Zune software playing all at the same time. It was a cacophany, but everything played just fine.

Cons: None for the price at the time ($45) and durability.

This will be my first new MoBo in 8 or 9 years, lol.

Other Thoughts: Chip idles about 30C and during heavy gaming will go as high as 54 during heavy gaming (World in Conflict).

I am moving this to a HTPC build since it plays HD video just fine, especially paired with the GTS250.

AMD 6000

Pros: This chip is strong enough for most people's computing needs. Only the gamers would want more. Music, video, web activities, + misc editing- of these are all handled well. I've had this for 2 years running. Good solid value.

Cons: Heat. At 125w, it can run warm, at least it's not 140w. A good cooler is warranted. Most heat problems stem from poor case cooling.

Other Thoughts: Yes, my chip is oc'd-so it does handle it. Running liquid cooling, Geil ddr2-8500, & ATI 5770 on Asrock board. Running temp does not exceed 124 F. even under sustained max load at 3.15 mhz. Windows 7/64 bit.

Get one while you can

Pros: Have been using a Windsor 5200+ for more than a year in an everyday PC with Win 7 Beta, RC, and now Pro (all 64-bit). Boots surprisingly fast and overall performance is more than acceptable. No problems whatsoever. Runs on a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UDP4 with 4GB of GSkill PC2-8500 teamed with a Visiontek HD 3870 OC which has also been great except for a little excessive fan noise from time to time.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you're an AMD fan boy or girl and don't have a good Windsor in your collection then get one while you can. Waited a long time for the Athlon 64 to mature and, it turned out, Windsor was probably the peak. The 5200+ Windsor is at least as good if not slightly faster than a 5400+ Brisbane. Surprisingly, haven't tried overclocking since it runs so well stock.

SWEET!!!

Pros: Coupled with 8Gb of RAM, this little puppy spanks Win2K8 srvr. Did give it a slight tweek, running at 3.4, stock air. No issues whatsoever.

Cons: Even with 8Gb of memory, it can't remember to add cream to my coffee.

Other Thoughts: Maybe Dual-Core (nowadays its 4-way and 6-way...). It is more than stout enough to do the job.
