One of the leading AMD chips just 3 months ago!
I am a system builder and build quite a number of system for diffrent people. i have recently built myself a new pc that i used this cpu for and it is nothing but amazing!
compared to my old banger of a celeron d cpu this thing blows it out of the water completly!
The absolute unique selling point of this chip to me was the fact that it is a black edition. those of you who are aware a black edition can help you easliy improve the speed of your chip with simple editing of the bios settings. All AMD black edition CPU's come with unlocked muliplyers which means it is easy to 'ocerclock' (making the speeds faster in return for higher temps) I therefore saw this and snapped up the oppurtunity to get such a great chip with the black edition features all for about £100.
if you want to build up a system yourself and are relativly new to it like myself then a black edition AMD CPU is a definte way to go. There safe and easy to use. not to mention the cost factor against intel!
