Intel Core 2 Duo E7600
Released May, 2009
The Pros:Affordable price. 65W TDP - common for desktop power CPUs, can be cooled quietly, effectively, easily. 3GHz+ core speeds, ideal for games and applications that prefer core-speed over number of cores.
The Cons:Only dual core. Not the greatest value vs. AMDs dual and tri-core Phenom II options. No professional reviews mean it is hard to gage chips overclockability (and thus its value to overclockers).
The Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 is a 3.06 GHz, 1066MHz FSB processor with 3MB Cache and falls in the middle of Intel's line of Core 2 Duo Processors. All processors in this line have 2 cores (hence the name) meaning they have two distinct processors on one chip allowing them to work seperately or together on a single large task.

65W TDP - common for desktop power CPUs, can be cooled quietly, effectively, easily
3GHz+ core speeds, ideal for games and applications that prefer core-speed over number of cores
built on the latest 45nm process - higher frequency while utilizing less power, giving off the same or less heat
not the greatest value vs. AMDs dual and tri-core Phenom II options
no professional reviews mean it is hard to gage chips overclockability (and thus its value to overclockers)
