I bought this processor a few months ago. I always had a good experience with Intel and once more I enjoyed their offering. This processor is a decent performer running at 3 GHz. It can fit in any motherboard having LGA775 socket. It is based on 65 nm manufacturing technology. And for sure it is dual core!
This processor runs at 3 GHz. It has decent FSB of 800 MHz. It is equipped with 2 MB l2 cache per core which means a total of 4 MB cache.
The power requirements of this processor are a bit higher than those of the newer Core 2 Duo processors but still they are not that high. The processor heats up a bit, so, take care of the airflow across the processor.
This processor performs good in games and other processor demanding applications. The price of the processor has decreased significantly since the launch of Core 2 Duo line of processors. So, these days they are extremely affordable. It also comes with a good 3 years warranty.
If you have got some money go for Intel Core 2 Duo family of processors. Although good, it is not better than Core 2 duo's in any respect.
