I bought the G0 stepping version of this processor from ebuyer.com for just over £150 back in august 2007. It came boxed with a cpu fan which already had some heatsink paste already applied, an instruction manual and a guarentee certificate.

It was simple to install, and I'm currently using it on a EVGA 680i motherboard.

The processor is outstanding and can run anything you put to it very very quickly. A lot of applications don't yet use more than one core, and only a few games do either. If you play games like Crysis however, which are multi-threaded, the game makes use of all the cores and thus will help the game run at much higher settings.

The processors also handles things like enocoding or rendering videos very well - compared to most processors I've used the time taken is a lot shorter.

I recommend getting the G0 stepping version, simply because it is far better at overclocking and you will be able to get greater speeds with the CPU being stable. Straight out of the box the CPU runs cooler than I expected anyway, which makes it able to reach clocks up to about 3.4GHz, which is very impressive.

For the price you can't get any better. If you're thinking about buying a faster dual core processor like the E6750 or E6850, DON'T! More cores is the way technology is advancing, and although the dual cores may seem faster, these quad cores are far better, can over clock more and will last you longer in the long run as more and more programs begin to use four cores.

This is an absolute bargain for what you get, and is simply the best processor you can get in terms of bang for your buck
