Of course it is! I am in complete love with it and it kicks everything coming its way. But it is a socket 754 chip, wich were rapidly replaced by a bunch of newer chips. My point is that while it is supposedly "obselete" in this sence, it doesnt mean it doesnt perform. The 3400+ is still very good, even with the 4000+, dual cores, FX57 and whatnot. I suppose it will last me for a few good years, it is just sad that I won't be able to upgrade without changing my Mobo. My next upgrade will be another Ram stick, then i'll have to change mobo, processor and gfx card, all at the same time. My card is agp and processor socket 754. Not very upgrade friendly if you ask me :uhm:

look at what i just did to my system today. upgraded mobo, processor, video card and PSU. i still kept 754 and not 939, i could have gone 939, but im making a statement skipping the whole gen. it will quickly die off as fast as 462.
