Summary: Put it in my budget gaming rig, works great, no problems, compatible with everything so far, and runs games like Skyrim, Arma 2, and other, modern games, on ultra settings. Haven't put it through Crysis yet, but I'm confident it can take it easily. Built 2 gaming computers, owned 3 others, and this is the best I've had it so far.
Really, the best bang for the average persons Buck

Summary: Great APU That is a cpu and a gpu in one chip? That is a good starting point for the average person using a computer. Most people only need to check the WEB, Email, Shop, Social media, average stuff, This is what most people need for the Money you can not beat it. If you play high end gaming, or do high end video editing, then you need something else and also a bigger bunch of CASH. You really will have a hard time to get a better Bang for your buck.
Summary: I bought this for a media center, it has no issues playing any kind of video I throw at it. However, the best part is the fan is so quiet, you can't even hear it which is the biggest factor when it comes with media centers.
Summary: A new motherboard-cpu combo to me , yet seems fast and economical for win8 pro media center home computer builder .I suggest buying a higher multicore cpu-apu for gaming as this is good as my Intel P-4 HT 530 cpu in old Dell mobo(which could not upgrade to win8 as Dell would not help rewrite old 2006 bios function.
Summary: I was building a low budget computer for my parents. I did not want to spend extra money on a CPU fan-heatsink. The heatsink-fan that came with the AMD-APU cpu works perfectly fine. does everything my parents want. It streams videos fine.
Summary: AMD might be lagging behind in the high end market, but this combo CPU/GPU at this price is great for the average user. The low power consumption means the system runs without heating up, is energy efficient and is almost silent as you don't need to crank the fans up to keep it cool.
