The Intel Core 2 Duo processor was developed to meet the insatiable demand for increased performance from PC users running multiple intense software applications simultaneously. In the office, PC usage has changed from data entry and word processing to e-Commerce, online collaboration, and an ever-increasing need for continual security and virus protection. In the home, interests have shifted from low-bandwidth photos and Internet surfing to downloading and viewing high-definition videos, as well as advanced photo and video editing.
Intels new 45nm manufacturing technology, with hafnium-infused Hi-k transistors, enables even more processor performance by doubling the transistor density, improving efficiency and speed relative to the previous generation, and increasing cache size by up to 50 percent. These new Intel Core 2 Duo processors deliver more performance without using more energy.
Built on the innovative Intel Core microarchitecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo desktop processor delivers revolutionary dual-core performance and breakthrough processor energy efficiency. With Intel Wide Dynamic Execution, Intel Smart Memory Access, Intel Advanced Smart Cache, and Intel Digital Media Boost, this new processor is designed to do more in less time. Additional features, which support enhanced security, virtualization, and 64-bit computing, make the Intel Core 2 Duo the most impressive processor developed for an increasingly multimedia-centered, high-definition world.

Of course make sure you check that your motherboard has the right frequency so it can power this CPU - check motherboard manual/homepage. I fell into this basic trap and had to buy a new motherboard as well (and I thought I knew something about computers;-)).
And if you build your computer well, with good components elsewhere and a well optimised Windows installation it will perform near enough as well as others much more expensive. The FSB often becomes a bottleneck in systems that are cored by much more powerful processors anyway.
-1 Star for value, as at the moment it is the same price as the slightly better E8500.
Very cool cpu and Gamming wise Is far better than Q6600 quad core beacuse at this moment most of games are not taking full advantage of the quad cores
If you are in to games this is the cpu for you ,If you are in video converting and Music converting by a quad core.
Everything running incredibly faster that my old P4 3.6Ghz
Multi-tasking and nothing seems to give it a prob.
Have yet to try some intensive graphic games which will be interesting to see how it handles them.
All running at Core no OC'ing because I would probably need to upgrade Mobo to benefit but I believe it is capable of so much more.
Very Please with things as they are just now and see no reason to change anything at this time
