An excellent budget buy at only £40! Mine runs happily at 3.5Ghz all day long with no problems. I have it attached to a large OCZ cooler, but I have no doubt that this would run at least 3.2 Ghz on a stock one.
All the Athlon II X2's should all run about the same when overclocked so there's little point spending over £60 on a top of the range one.
Only downside with this being an OEM chip is that it doesn't come with a cooler and fan in the box. If you don't want to shell out on an aftermarket kit then it might be worth paying an extra £7 or so on a retail 245 which will run a 100mhz faster standard and comes with the heatsink and fan included.
