"Best bang for buck for years"4.5 starson by TenFezToOne
Pros: Cheap and the end of netburst
Cons: Only 2 MB cache rather than the 4MB on top Core 2's
Summary: You really can not go wrong with this processor. They are very overclockable and review after review all over the internet has well and truly given the performance crown back to Intel after AMD had been the Daddy for the last couple of years. Pair this processor with with a descent 965 chipset based board and some reasonable PC2-6400 Ram and you can easily get an AMD FX62 beater for a quarter of the price.
