Pros Fast Fast Fast, And does not heat the room that you are in.
Cons Can't really find any at this time. It does what you want and fast.
Summary My Opinion is there is none better on the market at this time.
Make the leap and move to AMD, you will not be sorry you did. That goes for business or gamers alike.
The system you build with this chip will astound you.
Pros stays very cool, fast gamer, great multi-tasking
Cons quirky behavior, infrequent AMD drivers/updates
Summary I'm sure most of the annoyances* I've encountered will be worked out, but it's been long enough for AMD to fully support this pricey product.
*1-I've got to set affinity(disable 1 of the cores) for some apps to run properly.
2-doesn't have alot of latitude for OCing.
3-it's rather picky about what periferals, components, and some software it'll work with.
I'm hoping that when ista hits the shelves, this puppy will be optimized and'll fulfill it's potential.
Not recommended for those who want a CPU they can install and forget - it's high maintenance.

Summary Well,balls to the walls is how I would classify this cpu.And that's a fact!My DDR2/800 ram is slow compared to this hardwae-'nuff said!
