Summary: I bought this for a HTPC build. I chose this CPU because of its included GPU, which would forgo the need to buy a separate graphics card. So far it's been a great decision. Media plays beautifully! The price point on this chip beat a similar I3.
Summary: A very good processor. I have this in a low-end HTPC build. It plays netflix and Hulu fine, handles internet browsing, and even does a good job at DVDFab ripping and Handbrake encoding. I never feel like processing is slow (unlike my work computer which I always notice is slow).
Summary: I didn't want to buy this processor, just as a small note to be aware of when you read this. I bought this processor to test a motherboard when my athlon 860k decided to die and newegg did not want to express ship me a new one.
slower than my low end intel cpu on my laptop. Nice gaming though.

Summary: I used this for a personal build, and placed in 16GB of 1600mhz ram. I also have an ssd. The speed is inadequate as it delays when opening simple folders and files. I gamed on it and it was pretty good but as for normal use it has a delay in it that I don't see on my intel laptop which supposedly...
Summary: It survives as a daily use CPU, and can do some mild gaming. It was definitely worth the $45+ that I spent on it, given that the editing PC that I put it in has been working great for a year or so.
