Good CPU. I paid a more over a year ago. It will overclock to 3Ghz with next to no impact on heat or stability.

is it worth replacing an e8200 for this? :S

Yes, I would say so.


Depends on what the system is used for really...

If its only for surfing the net and playing a few old games, then i cant really see it making any difference.

If its used for video encoding and things that are written specifically for quad cores then yes.

If s/he just wants "faster games" then a graphics card will be a better investment.

i've got a ati 4670 atm
i guess it isn't worth it - I only play C&C and mostly just surf
I don't think it speeds up generall used programs then
maybe a faster hard drive?

thanks you two!
