why are people voting this cold?

It is good bit this http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/107617 is what you want, even though it's not in stock! Don't know how much that one would be, but even at £51 it's a bargain. Motherboard for that start at like £30, 2 gigs of the http://www.hotukdeals.com/deal/28262/kingston-1gb-ddr2-667-22-95-deliverRAM..........damn you hotukdeals you got me going again! I'm so tempted to make a new PC now!

Anyway, i better shut up and vote this hot
#3
Cheapest dual core cpu around. Voted Hot.
#4
IMHO, the best processor for an entry level system. I.e. one that I would always go for unless you have special requirements, such as games or cpu intensive tasks.

Great processor, amazing price, voted hot!
#5
It's actually cheaper than some single core Athlons and Semprons! OK now I'm very tempted to upgrade! If only I haven't been spending money on a whole host of other things lately :(
#6
kobirulali, the motherboard you mention is for Intel CPUs. Last time I looked at upgrading this was the motherboard I wanted but I think AMD/ATI have released a new chipset since then which beats the 6150. I'd look for something with built in DVI so you can use a TFT/LCD monitor without resorting to a VGA connection, unless of course you plan to add a PCI-express graphics card.

805D is a good overclocker but it is old p4 technology


at their default clocks the x2 3600 runs faster and much cooler! it is also some £2 cheaper

I wouldn't call this a 'deal' more a 'stating the obvious of price drops due to presentation of new technologies to the market'.

Cold.

This item is Great Value For Money. Can you show me a dual core CPU that can match or beat this processor for the same price or cheaper? i dont think you can!


at the moment, this cpu is the cheapest dual core cpu out there. add to that, it is faster than what 99% of people require. it uses less electricity than p4 or core2 parts and even other non energy efficient am2 parts, overall, it is a great bargain!!!

unless you care to show me a cpu that matches or beats this one on performances for the same or lower price! Bet you cant!

Didn't realise we were working to such a close definition of what a 'deal' is, Most tech that has its price lowered is due to the arrival of newer tech. Not everyone uses Ebuyer so this is a great deal to show people that they can upgrade to dual-core for a good price, I think I paid almost that for my old Socket-A Sempron about two and a half years ago!

Ridiculous to vote this cold (by your reasoning you may as well vote every DVD player/recorder, PC, MP3 player, etc. cold too) so I'm voting it hot to counteract that!

Well done to the original poster, keep up the good work!

If there's one thing you can bank on it's that computer components will drop in price over time; no surprise there. What makes this a good deal worth pointing out is that it's the best entry level processor at this moment in time, at a price point whereby it would make little sense to buy anything else unless you're willing to part with the extra cash for a core2duo. You can forget single core Athlons, Semprons and certainly rule out the old 805D! I wouldn't touch that with a barge pole.

A lot of us like to keep an eye on the prices of these components so we can judge when best to upgrade and with the google checkout offer, I'm sure lots of us a looking a lot more seriously now. The whole point of this site is to save some time checking up on those prices.

Great entry level processor, got this one for a friend along with a new foxconn motherboard and that 1gb Kingston Ram - massive upgrade to her PC for about £100 total. Voted hot.

Also building a mid range gaming PC for another mate using the 4600 thats been mentioned on the forums, theres something for everyone on ebuyer at the moment - never been a better time to build a PC.

I always get confused with all the various AMD processor revisions but after some research it seems to me this would be a better deal. Same price but this one is the Brisbane core (1.9GHz, 2x512KB cache, 65W). Clock speed slightly lower but power usage/heat should be slightly lower. Not sure on the difference in performance but the extra cache should compensate in most applications for the 100MHz drop in clock speed. Anyone have opinions on this?

EDIT: Doh! That was the processor in the OP! :oops:
#14
for the people who are calling this an entry level processor, you could not be more wrong.


The computer im typing on has the most modern CPU and GPU on the market, it cost me an arm and a leg, but right now.... typing this on HUKD..... it wouldn’t matter if i was using this machine or an AMD 3600+ machine.


the only times where i can say, yes it was worth spending £300 on my cpu is when im playing games.... and then only because the other components are fast enough to tax the cpu


i put it to you, that an average computers CPU is only using 1% of its max 99% of the time.


this processor is currently the best on the market for the price, unless you are a serious gamer [and have the other components to match] or use a computer as a living [eg Photoshop ect] then this is the processor for you

Agreed but it's an entry level processor because it's the slowest of the AMD X2 line. Just because a lot of people won't need any faster doesn't change that. It would suit me just fine but it's not what I'd recommend to someone doing lots of AV work so people need to evaluate it for their own uses.

A Core 2 Duo rather than this can make a system much more responsive, even for web browsing etc, so I would say it's worth the extra money.

that is an incorrect and ignorant comment :thumbsup:


a q6600 at £350 will not be even a tad faster than this processor while browsing web pages :giggle:
