...snip... I would have to add that AMD's slowest X2 is probably alot faster then the 805D but I dont think its 3X faster ?
Depends on how much you wanna overclock it. When OC'ed to 4.1GHz, the 805D whups even the FX-60 and Pentium XE in a bunch of benchmarks, let alone AMD's slowest X2:http://www.tomshardware.com/2006/05/10/dual_41_ghz_cores/
If the darn thing really only costs $93, does anyone care if it burns out like a light bulb in 6 months?
Well I was talking about stock speeds
lol I think a mild bit of OCing makes it realy a great deal for those who are brave enough
