Value cpu

Awesome cpu.

With that cpu in my set I can run all programs in a fraction of second, very fast when it comes to compressing and decompressing files, also with two cores I can alt tab from any game in a matter of second, without waiting whatsoever.

As for the gaming, I dont have much games left but from those I ran I can say that its great. I run one of the most cpu-eating games which is World of Warcraft and never got less than 30 fps with about 100 other players on screen.

It got 6.4 score(out of 7.9) on Windows Experience Index.

Brilliant for the price

I bought this CPU as i had a spare AM2+ plus mobo and wanted to get another rig up and running but didnt want to fork out and arm and a leg.

This was the option i decided on. Dual core is more than enough and 2.9Ghz per core is awesome for the price.

Performance is good. Rates at 5.7 on vista 64 and Windows 7 32 which is lower than i expected, but runs fine.

This is not as fast as my Phenom 9950 but unless you are performing video encoding, games and multiple desktops at the same time it doesnt matter.

Cheap CPU without compromising performance? This is your choice!
