OK. It's not the latest and greatest, but a fantastic Socket 775 CPU for the money. I bought one last week for £54 for a budget build. Comes with a stock heatsink and fan.

I paid £50 for the faster and more powerful E6300 not that long ago from surely this is worse?
Both are 2.8 GHz.

The E5500 benchmarks higher than the E6300 though.
If looking for a dual-core alternative to this around the same price point, i suggest Intel G6950

Based on 35nm fabrication process, low TDP and highly overclockable

Agreed. But you'd be looking at a little over £70?
Phenom 2 x2 3.0ghz with a asrock motherboard. You'll have to pay an extra tenner for the chip but you would gain a tenner from buying the board. Great overclocker and performance wise its in a completely different class.
G6950 - 35nm??? And +£30 for a m/ £50 more than budget e5500 setup.

Not sure why this is so cold - nobody seems to be suggesting a better price or a faster alternative without paying more ...
I'm surprised myself. The next cheapest of these is from Aria for £54.68

Benchmark-wise (PC Mark), this is one of the best performance/price cpus around. It's not up to my standards for personal use as I have a few demanding games, but it's still a great cpu at a cheap price.
Trouble is a lot of people vote without reading the comments, so they see a cold deal and vote it colder still without knowing the story.
Its cold because you can get so much more for an extra 10 or 20 pound. Its cheap in regards to finding another similar chip. But overpriced in respect of more modern competition being considerably better.
for an extra 10 or 20 pound.

You said it buddy.
I dont understand your logic with this hardware. Its not a hot deal if the hardware is obsolete. I think I had a 775 Core 2 Duo in 07 and it only cost about 80 quid then.
It's obsolete to you and I. Even though I'm still on 775 albeit an E8400 (which still holds up mighty well to what I throw at it). But what you have to remember is that not everyone is an avid gamer/video editor and therefore doesn't need and i5/i7 etc.

For someone who just needs a PC to browse the net and use office, this is a great cpu. Obsolete, my ass. People are still using celerons, and this is much better than that.
If its someone who wants to just browse the net and use office. They have ethier bought a package deal from dell saving them huge amounts of cash and hassel. Builders go for value for money in regards to performance/price ratios.
