I can't believe that last year this very same processor sold for around $1,000.00! Using a MSI motherboard, I had to update the BIOS with a new version to support the dual-core processor. Pulled my old processor out and plugged this one in with no problems - Windows XP SP2 recognized it immediatly and installed all necessary support software automatically. After the restart, it easly smoked my previous 3200 2GHz Venice core and loaded Adobe Photoshop CS2 so fast I stared at it for 10 seconds before I realized it was already open and ready to work.
Will be looking to overclock it soon! Excellent processor for the price - highly recommended.
