Pretty much defining the phrase "Bang for your buck" with this one. This is a seriously good deal, seems like they're about to bring in a whole new load of processors, never the less, my advice would be to not miss out on this.

For this price, the Phenom 955 will definitely have you smiling. I play a lot of games (check my other reviews), do some programming, have several demanging app's running at once and do a lot of transferring across hard disks, and this processor is faster than i am.

On the gaming front, i've still yet to find any game that will exhaust its 4 cores, i've even stress tested by running both Bad Company 2 and Metro 2033 at once, the CPU was sitting comfortably at around 70-80%.

In terms of overclocking, i've had it nice and stable at 3.8Ghz, im aware it can be pushed up to 4Ghz, but i personally wouldnt bother.

It comes with the usual AMD stock cooler, if your oc'ing it, you might want to invest in something a little chunkier.

For a mid to high range processor at this price, look no further. This is a bargain, a must have for anyone with anything less. Fantastic peice of kit at a dead cheap price!
