    Pros:
    Significantly faster than Athlon X2 and Pentium D
    Good price/performance ratio
    Runs cool
    Good overclocker

    Cons:
    The E6400 costs only a bit more
    Has only 2 MB L2 cache unlike higher end C2D's
    9000 bucks is still too much for most people
    You need a new 965 mobo to exploit this fully

    Regarding the option of buying Intel Motherboards, I standout because nowadays Intel Boards only have 1 IDE Slot :mad: on their boards
    Instead they have 4 SATA Slots:confused:
    Frankly am not a SATA liking person as I have already experienced problem with Seagate 80 GB SATA HDD
    IDE has always been my favourite and will always be:smile:

    Just one bad experience with a SATA HDD dosen't make SATA bad.
    Not to mention the problem must have been with the actual HDD, so why blame the SATA interface?

    SATA offers higher speeds and less cable clutter in the cabinet. Not to mention eSATA ports on newer mobo's allow you to hot-plug SATA HDD's.

    Pretty soon all optical drives will also shift to SATA. Like it or not IDE will die within the next 2 Intel chipsets.

    truly druvarunmehta. One instance shudn't make SATA bad but techtronic wanna play safe. SATA is the technology of furture for realiablity/speed.
    SATA optical drivers are in the market(not sure of Indian market) major comp. manufacturers(Dell, HP) are offering complete SATA boards with SATAoptical drives
