I would probably jump on this right now for my upcoming home entertainment PC build I want to do, but the thermal envelope for this processor is just too high. If I were doing a straight gaming PC, I'd snatch it up.

This is a kick ass processor at an amazing price, it's still very viable for gaming and very reliable. It is going to be near impossible to beat the price/performance ratio on this deal. Any good 3.4Ghz quad core is of course going to require a bit more power and there by have a larger thermal envelope. I recommend going with a good 3rd party CPU fan as the OEM one provided by AMD works, but is noisy and can fail after some time as it is not a high end CPU fan.
