yeah usually a product or company are only bad to me if i have used or experienced one and they are bad , also i hate people that judge a whole company by one product for instance i had a bad experience with an amd duron once but i still bought my athlon xp cos it is a different product

Yeah they are good, i could have got my processor for about 30p cheaper from ebuyer. I didnt go for ebuyer tho because it was 5 days delivery time, whereas OCUK was next day for a few pennies more. Ive been using these for about 6 years now with no probs.

30p is by the by anyway and if you have already used ocuk then you know their customer service

Yeah theres a big diference, especially for multi tasking, but that was to be expected, going from single core to dual core.

Im stuck with an athlon64 processor now tho, i was gonna stick it in my sempron system, but they are different socket types
