Good compared to what?

A 4000+ is considered, uhm, almost like lower midrange these days as far as its general benchmark performance is concerned.

I've suffered rig atrophy over the last two years, and even now I'd kill for a 4000+...

But look at everybody's signatures around here and other hardware forums. Core 2 duos and X2 A64 chips rule the roost using new cpu sockets and chipsets that support DDR2 memory.

939 cpu's are considered old hat for their lack of DDR2 support. I've never owned or benchmarked a ddr2 rig, so I don't know firsthand of the new advantages of ddr2...

Well as 3800+ owner I'd say a 4000+ would keep you pretty happy, though I would aim for something newer if you can. My 3800+ still plays well, the 8800GTX and X-Fi help out a fair bit though.

Depending on your expectations, the 4000+ performs just fine on every game out there. You can easily over clock it to 2.7GHz and even with out the over clock games like oblivion will play just fine @ 1600 x 1200 w/ 4xAA and 16xAF with a 8800GTS and 2 gigs of decent memory. It's a steal for the budget minded gamer @ $60 from newegg.

I have one, in my HTPC, running at stock speed. It is enough for most games currently on the market. My C2D eats its lunch, though.

Good call on going with that. I would chose that over the 4000+ any day.

As you can tell by my sig, I support this statement 100%. :D
