Sure it may be 75-85% of the Intel, but my real-world usage says to me that for the price, I made the right choice. Every PC I've owned except one has had an AMD at the heart. I've yet to be let down...
I'm currently using this in a server running VMware ESXi 5. It's a server that runs multiple virtual machines at once. So far it has not had any issues with about 3 VMs running at the same time. Of course I am not really pushing the server, so if you were planning a similar setup and wanted to run many VMs a quad core might be in order. Anyway, my point is this thing runs fine running ESXi, so for simple desktop use it should be way more than fine for most people.
At the price Amazon has it at you would be hard pressed to find better.
Compared to similar Celeron/Pentium Dual Cores (Wolfdale series) you get more Mhz per dollar and this chip has a 2MB L2 cache compared to the 1MB L2 cache on some of the Intels.
For those who are wondering: it seems that this chip is made from an actual dual core process (i.e. it's not a quad core with 2 cores disabled) and thus more cores cannot be unlocked. Mine would not unlock.
TL;DR- You should buy a better heatsink/fan.
