Bought this as part of a media PC, an Acer Aspire E700 back in 2007. It has worked flawlessly since then and has managed to run games like Oblivion perfectly with a little hyperthread tweaking in the said games .ini file. It is perfect for a media computer and was definately worth it in a 700 package computer. I have heard it is good for a bit of OCing so Imma try that now.

Summary: Was brill as part as a package media computer, perfect for multi tasking and is above average for games of this year.

I am loving this CPU too much. Worked right out of the box, I over-clocked it to a stable 3.0GHz with no problem. I've had for quite some time, and I can tell you that it's worth the money 100%. Great for multi-tasking, video-editing and gaming.

G0 Stepping is amazing. Overclock to 3.07 on a stock like heatsink. One of the best in multitasking. You will never max out this processor.
