Intel Cpu Pentium D 950 3.4Ghz Fsb800Mhz 2Mbx2 Lga775 Dual Core Tray
I'm thrilled with my purchase. My computer zings! Even before the new video card and extra RAM, I noticed a big improvement in performance and was able to run streaming video without hesitations and choppiness.

You gotta... GOTTA.. check compatibility with the board, but if your board will take this CPU, it is a dilly. I put this fan on the CPU and I did not have heat problems at all.
http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-CL-P0497-Intel-775-Cpu/dp/B001CCGYU0/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1338031432&sr=1-1

Intel stopped its drive to increase the speed of the old 775 CPU's because heat got in the way of data crunching. That fan seemed to do well.
If you do put it all together, do NOT put the fan on too tight. If you like, you can put nylon washers between the back plate and the board when you mount. It is a good CPU for an upgrade. PRINT the add and order when you do buy and Amazon will see you through if the guy is a rouge supplier.

For those of you like me who have a old pc with a LGA775 socket motherboard. This makes a cheap and great upgrade for CPU performance. I went from a Intel Pentium D 830 3.0GHz 90nm Process CPU to this Intel Pentium D 950 3.4GHz 65nm Process CPU. This gave a nice bump in performance in my old Dell Dimension 9150. Earlier I also put a Samsung 840 256GB SSD and a ASUS GT 630 2GB graphics card in there. Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit with 4GB ram. With these upgrades, this 9-10 year old machine runs faster than a lot of new ones believe it or not.

Other notes:
- Came pre-tested by seller, to prevent DOA and time wasting.
- Came with thermal paste :)
- Came with anti-static wrist strap :)

Old tech, bought used and runs good.
Only reason ease of use is still not so great is that you have to have aftermarket cooler to really max out this chip. Also, watch out for your mobo's limits as it's possible that your mobo can be a hindrance as well.

If you're looking for an inexpensive way to start building your own computers and don't necessarily need the latest and greatest hardware (say for a childs computer) the Pentium D is the way to go. I got the Pentium D when it first came out and was upgrading from a Dual Pentium 3 1.0 ghz Processor. The jump in speed was amazing but also the stability of the processor amazed me. Even though I loved my PIII Processor as I started to push my computer a bit more with 3D animation and graphics it just couldn't keep up anymore. I had tried P4 Hyper-threaded processors and found those to be laggy and buggy at times. But with the Pentium D I felt like I was truly working with an Upgraded PIII that I loved already. The other great thing about this processor is that it was the first one that was able to work in either a 32-bit or 64-bit OS. When I first got this chip I was on a 32-bit WinXP system. Then, because I wanted to experiment with it, switched over to WinXP64. Without a hiccup the processor kept chugging along and worked even better than it did in the 32 bit OS. I skipped upgrading to Vista but when Win7 came out, I immediately jumped over to the Win764 OS and still no problems. I'm actually still using this chip and board for all my 3D animation and 3D gaming.
As for cons: The board I'm using is an Intel Classics board and the board has a limitation of only 4GB's of RAM as do most boards that support the PD. As an animator, render time is something I have to pay real close attention to and this chip does under perform in that area compared to modern day chips (i3, i5, i7's). But if you're just doing some casual gaming, or just experimenting building your own computer this is a great chip to go with. The hardware it inexpensive now and will let you do just about anything that todays chips let you do.
