Good Price, Nice Performance. Bit of an OC'er too!

Summary: I bought this CPU for a little over $60 for a cheap gaming build. For a while I relied on the integrated graphics, but later made the decision to buy a Radeon HD 7700 series GPU. I decided to test the iGPU with Dirt 3 as it's advertised on the packaging. The game ran pretty well just under maxed settings. Overall I'm very pleased with the performance of the iGPU. It could even tackle Skyrim on Mid-High settings.
Summary: This is going to be for my girlfriend's media PC. Since all she wants to do is watch downloaded movies, Netflix, light web surfing, this is going to be great! Really looking forward to seeing her face light up when it's all done and she see how much fast this is then her VERY old Core2 Duo laptop.
Summary: I have this paired with an ECS A55-M2 motherboard running in my HTPC with no problems. This combo along with an SSD gives excellent performance, speeds are incredible. Although I am running XBMCbuntu, which probably helps with the speeds as well. The stock fan is quiet and temps get no higher than 27c when playing 1080p movies for hours. I have no other fans besides the PSU fan.
Summary: This is my running my NAS system. It has been going great for the past couple months. The NAS is always on and is active quite a bit. This thing has kept up without missing a beat. I couldn't be happier with the purchase, I have more than enough power that I can't really see an upgrade happening for quite some time. I would recommend this to anyone contemplating a NAS build.
Summary: Installed this in a HTPC build and was happily surprised at its performance. As far as processing power, it is not the strongest/fastest by any means. But it handles media very well and was successful at playing Borderlands with medium/high graphics settings. Very nice not having to buy a video card! Low price for a good APU!
