Low-End: Pentium Dual Core E2160
The Pentium Dual Core E2160 is an old friend of ours, as it keeps serving us very well in one of our test lab computers. We recently drove the 1.8 GHz processor all the way up to 3.2 GHz, at which it can actually compete with a Core 2 Duo at similar clock speeds - but a ridiculously low price. We also used this processor for our $500 Gaming Machine article, 2007 edition.
