Intel Pentium D 805 Smithfield Dual Core Processor

Most enthusiasts will dismiss the Pentium D 805 with indifference, and they'd be missing out on a surprisingly impressive processor. For the starving student, internet capable Grandma, or people needing a short term solution until Conroe's arrival, the Pentium D 805 is a very good option. Anandtech, as usual, did a great writeup earlier this week, and in their conclusion they touch on the fact that for merely $30 more you can get a much better processor in the Pentium D 820....which is true.....but that $30 can get you a DVD burner, a cheap case, or a better cooling solution. I think they miss the point in that this processor is not targeting the enthusiast crowd. Having said that, the Pentium D 805 proved to be a really good overclocker, scaling well past 3.5GHz while on air cooling.

Come on guys, we have posted several 805D reviews in a short few days; it is "cheap"; correction - reasonably priced much lower than the competitor not cheap by any standard; we expect you guys would welcome this no worst than the XP1700+. Unless, you simply don't like Intel.

So, give me a chance; buy me for the sake of low price if not the >46% overclock. I am built because of you; take me home, please?
