It's good for gaming, about equal to the Intel Q9400. Overclocks well. Only has a DDR2 memory controller, can not be used with an AM3 motherboard and DDR3 RAM.

It's a good CPU and it's at a good price right now. Get it if your motherboard supports it.

+1. I've heard they overclock pretty well too.

Great. I will overclock it, well, just tweak the multiplier anyways. And my motherboard does support it. Thanks, any other thoughts would be helpful and appreciated

I'd reccomend you get a nice quality heatsink like the Sunbeam CCF, Xigmatek Dark Night, or Scythe Mugen 2 if you don't have one already. Good luck on the OC.

People say the scythe mugen 2 is HUGE. i dont know if i have much room, this is basic case that i customized myself with more fans and all that. The dark knight looks good, but kind of pricey, i have a pretty basic aftermarket cooler already, ill see how that holds up.

But i dont plan on buying a new mobo, i might in a couple weeks or a month, but ddr3 is too expensive, as are those mobos. So im just looking to upgrade my cpu right now.

Well, i found a deal on an am2+ am3 790gx mobo for 80 bux. So i might go with that, and the 940, then i can always upgrade to a better cpu.
