Nice upgrade

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 2.7 GHz Socket AM2 65W Processor - ADO5200DOBOX

Pros: Nice and inexpensive upgrade for an HP computer. Combined this with a GTS250 video card and turned my basic HP in to a satisfactory gaming computer. Games and apps load a lot faster and run more smoothly. Actually is pretty comparable to my Q6600 and 8800gts in my other computer.

Cons: Couldn't go quad core with the mobo in the HP computer.

Overall Review: I definitely recommend this CPU for anyone who is limited to 65w CPU upgrades in AM2 boards. Great bang for the buck.

Worked perfectly

Pros: Fit right in a newer black Wii. Works fine, does what it is supposed to.

Pros: Great bang for the buck Fast card Runs all my games on high settings I can't hear it

Cons: Wish I had two

Overall Review: I bought this to replace my GTS 250. What a huge difference. I can now run all my games on high settings with AA and AF enabled. Played Battlefield Bad Company 2 beta on all high setting with 4X AA and AF at 1680X1050 very smoothly. Specs - ASUS M4A77D mobo, AMD Athlon II X4 630 OCed to 3.2, 4 GB Crucial RAM, Two 500 GB hard drives, LG DVD Burner, ATI HD 4890

Pros: Runs everything I need Modular Works

Cons: As someone else mentioned, the 4 and 8 pin Motherboard connections are both permanently attached. You will never use both at the same time so its kind of a waste.

Overall Review: Running an ASUS M4A77D mobo, AMD Athlon II X4 630 OCed to 3.2, 4 GB Crucial RAM, Two 500 GB hard drives, LG DVD Burner, and an ATI HD 4890 graphics card and no problems yet.

Esay Set Up

Pros: Easy to install and set up. Worked out of the box. Bios are easy to work with.

Cons: Weird audio crackling and noises.

Overall Review: Overall the board is great, but I was getting this weird faint crackling and noise from my speakers once in a while. I used these speakers on my old PC, so it's not the speakers. Real faint and only happens once in a while, but can be annoying Specs - ASUS M4A77D mobo, AMD Athlon II X4 630 OCed to 3.2, 4 GB Crucial RAM, Two 500 GB hard drives, LG DVD Burner, ATI HD 4890
