Im building a HTPC very soon, would this be better than a Athlon X2 3800+ 2.0Ghz? bearing in mind I will be using a microATX motherboard.

It's the entry level core2. Iirc the celeron replacements are the single core conroe-l. These seem to be aimed at the 3600 and 3800 x2s.

Should be much better.

What mATX board you looking at using? one of the new AMD690G ones?

If it's a fully featured C2D then it's a bloody bargain and would beat out an X2 3800

Here are some benches for it, not far off an e4300 at all! Just seems like a cut down allendale tbh. Slower clocks and half the cache. Could be a pretty good chip!

What do you expect dude? With the £10 off google checkout thing you're pretty much getting it for free!

And for the HTPC look no further than our very own kemp's review for your motherboard: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews.p...hd_motherboard
