Summary: Got a good deal on this processor - I don't need cutting edge graphics, plus the built in GPU saved me money on my desktop upgrade. Had no issues with installation and it is running just fine. I don't overclock, so I can't comment on that aspect of the CPU.
Summary: I love this cheap CPU. I used it to upgrade an old single core and wow. Its actually faster than my gaming rig (phenom 2 1045 six core) at watching youtube videos. I tagged it with 6670 GPU and it seems to upgrade the video WIN EX numbers. I can play the new tombraider at lower levels just as an experiment. I set this up for the wife and she couldnt be happier. If doing video gaming this is not really the CPU for you.
It works great. Can also game on medium with modern games ...

Summary: These are fast processors. My MSI motherboard OC Genie overclocked it to 4.1 GigHz. Built for my kids to play Minecraft. It works great. Can also game on medium settings with modern games such as MechWarrior online with no need for a Video Card.
Summary: Not bad especially for the price. I also purchased the quad core 3.9Ghz for my main computer. I would highly recommend getting the quad core over this one. Spend the extra $40 it is well worth it. Both my computers are exactly the same except for the processor and the quad core set up will run circles around this processor. I don't do a lot of gaming with my computer but I do watch movies, surf the web, check email, and Skype.
Summary: Great price and handles everything I need in terms of graphics for my HTPC. If you have a big enough case you may want to consider buying a separate heat sink / fan as this little chip can run hot. The heat sink and fan is included with pre-applied thermal paste but I would still recommend a non stock one.
Summary: I bought this processor for two reasons. It was inexpensive and I needed dual core. I use it exclusively as a Minecraft server CPU. It performs really well for the three people I've had play on it. I did notice that the performance is significantly better when you run the server software without the GUI (Probably because this is a CPU/GPU). This isn't any average minecraft server though.
