It's still a good processor, not for gaming, but it's still running in my second homeoffice PC and still performs (seems to be unkillable).
I think after the years, the best upgrades were Q6600, FX-8350 and for now a Rizen-Prozessor are the best solutions for best performance. (compared to pricing).

You can still get good performance with this cpu. Mine is @3010Mhz and its performance is decent. Spectre and meltdown patches have made it worse though.

Hi mates. I have a question for someone who can give me a professional answer. I got this cpu with 4GB of DDR2 for free. Can you tell which GPU(old) is the best for it, like the sweet spot, where there is no bottleneck or at least very low.
