Summary: I just brought this processor for a gaming PC and it exceeded my expectations. It allows you to run games like chrysis 3, skyrim, battlefield 3 at medium high settings. Not the greatest but pretty good frame rates for the money. At this price there isn't another processor out there that matches it. If you decide to overclock it from 3.8 to 4.2 you can easily get up to 60fps with this processor and 4gb of ram.
Summary: I do just basic gaming and it handles it well with the built in Radeon graphics. At some point in the future I will probably add in a graphics card to supplement what comes on the processor. All in all a very capable base for a system. Only complaint is that it uses more power than the Intel processors.
Summary: I purchased this to replace the core i3 setup in my media center pc and it works great, no problems recording transcoding and playing back multiple hd streams on a gigabit lan. Stock HSF is really loud so I recommend finding a nice quiet one to replace it.
Summary: Running on a A85XA motherboard with a 660tf oc and 16gb ddr3 2133 windows 8 pro, max out Crysis 3 with no issues 40-75fps constant. Have had the CPU lock up a few times it does not like volts much but thats it problem not mine
Pros: Runs great Got it at 4.75ghz on a Seidon Cooler. Games great though with added GPU and DDR3 2133. Highly Recommend
Cons: Hot these F'ers get hot real hot when OCing. They do not OC well at all but are fun and great for a low cost gaming rig
Summary: I bought this to put in an HTPC, mainly because I didn't want to have to buy a separate graphics card. The built in GPU works great with my MSI motherboard and runs plenty fast for my HTPC that has a dual dvr tuner the only negative is that it would be faster, but then again it's low power which offsets that
Summary: Hi! I bought this processor to run my lab enviroment (I'm studying virtualizaton).The system has been working for more then 3 months without any issue. I have to say that was a very good deal for the use.
Summary: This CPU is for sure not good as an i3 third gen, but its really damn good for a budget build is tou want to go from a console to computer or just upgrade from an older system. I would not recommend it if you want to use a graphic card that is not dual graphics capable.
Pros: The dual graphics solution is very decent I got it with a 6670 and graphics are just awesome for the price.
Summary: Was able to build a decent PC from the ground up for around $600 (including monitor) using this chip. Great setup for multi-media, and good for gaming if you're not too concerned with the highest end graphics.
Summary: I love using these on my normal system builds. They give a solid value in performance and cost. They are in no way as fast as the Intel in raw numbers, but for most people who aren't going to be playing a lot of games or doing heavy video or image work, they are very fast.
