Summary: This runs great. I don't game, just do some photo editing, mostly surf the net. Like that they integrated the graphics CPU from Toronto based AMD, they bought out. Quit spending your hard earned cash on Intel unless you really need to empty your wallet and go a bit faster. I never had a processor fail in 15 years either. Keep the fan running and heat sink attached. That's it!
Summary: This CPU was purchased as a MB-CPU-RAM combo for a customer build. The customer needed dual-screen capability for photo editing and other tasks, but not gaming. This is a great product perfect for that, plus some light gaming! It worked perfectly, was easy to set up and use, affordable, and has more potential as the customer learns to use it more. If the customer is happy, I'm happy; and the customer is very happy!
Summary: This is the third processor of this type I've purchased in the last month. I bought the first one (non-black edition) for my son, and was blown away by the games that he could now play. I was so pleased that I purchased this one for my daughter and could not be more pleased. I do not have a discrete graphics card installed and they are playing BF3 (medium settings), GW2 (medium settings), Star Wars: The Old Republic (low-medium settings), etc.
