Sure, the Pentium D 805 sucks when stock, but overclock that baby and watch it fly, for only $93!
True that. The Core 2 Duos perform so much for so little. 183 bucks is such a good price for something that performs so well.

Yup, and you can probably overclock it to 3.0Ghz or so. Stock is about 1.83Ghz for the lowest-bin Core 2 Duo.

I'm still surprised that people think that AMD is still better for gaming
