Summary: I've got this chip installed on the ASRock A75M-ITX Mini ITX motherboard and they are a match made in heaven. I wouldn't recommend this for avid gamers but the chip IS very capable at medium and lower graphics settings in most games.
Solid CPU power, capable GPU (essentially a 256 MB card)

Summary: The AMD APU series of CPUs are very economical and affordable. They might not stack up so well next to the AMD phenom or intel i3's, but there is plenty of CPU power for multimedia streaming, playback, and capable data processing (creating videos, photoshop, converting files, etc.).
Summary: I'm currently running this processor on a Asus F1A75-I deluxe, a mini ITX mobo, and 4GB of 1600 RAM and a 250W PSU, I can run Crysis on High, although the FPS does suffer, but find that with medium settings it finds a good balance, I know that referencing Crysis as the standard is getting a little...
Summary: I used this processor to set up a system using an Apeiva X-DREAMER3-PK ATX Pink Mid Tower Case w/ a Gigabyte motherboard. Super easy install for someone with a little experience building computers.
Summary: I bought the TOM's Hardware recommended motherboard made by Gigabyte model # A75M-UD2H....this will be a good set...just need to get me a 6950 vidio card and 16gb of ram...to complete....I am going to try a Linux version Zorin 5.0 64bit
Summary: Purchased this processor for use in a new system for my mom, it's a very good performer for the price, for my mom's use its overkill but she keeps systems for many years, her last one was almost 10 years old.
Perfect for HTPC...and work tasks for most professionals.

Summary: I've wanted to get one of the new AMD APU's since their release a few months ago. For those who don't know 'APU' means accelerated processing unit which is a fancy way of saying there is a CPU and GPU (discrete graphics card) combined as one on this chip.
