I bought 4 of these Processors off Ebuyer a few weeks back, I got them at £49.48 each which I would say is a complete bargain. The Processor its self is Socket AM2 which means it has 940 Pins on it. It is also Dual Core so it should be able to handle Windows Vista and many other high demanding applications.
The Processor came in a Small Box Made of cardboard like usual the boxes and it contained 1 Processor, License For Warranty with instructions and 1 Heat sink and Fan with thermal paste pad already on the heat sink all you have to do is remove the plastic and install the heat sink as usual.
After I installed windows Vista I could see how powerful this processor really is, it doesn't lag or stop working at all and all for jus £50. Another reason for me buying this processor was that it is the Energy Efficient version which means it only uses 65 Watts of Electric, Better for the environment  and cheaper for my bills. In Windows Vista the Processor gets rated 4.9 out of 5.9 on the Windows Experience Index which you can tell is very good for such a low priced CPU.
I would recommend getting a Power Supply of at least 400Watts for this processor and it must have a 24 Pin Power connector and a P4 Connector for the Motherboard, if you do not the computer may not start. You will also need to find a compatible motherboard for this as well but if you are building your own PC I would suspect you know which parts to use.
The CPU Runs at 2.3 GHZ it is overclockable but I did not try this as the computers were not for me. The other features this beast has are 64 bit Technology, 3Dnow!, Streaming SIMD Extensions, Streaming SIMD Extensions 2, Integrated memory controller, AMD Cool'n'Quiet Technology. Mix this all together and you get the magic of what AMD has produced I would recommend this to anyone who needs a decent processor at a cheap price.
All in all I would say that this Item has scored a 10/10 for me it was perfect I will definitely use again, well done AMD keep them coming.
