Summary: Wonderful little processor. Nearly the best bang for the buck out there. I use it mainly for 3d modelling and moderate gaming. This processor handles it nicely. Just some things I might add: In Blender (an animation program), cpu processing peaked at 98% but normally stays round 75%-87% when...
Summary: Pros: inexpensive. Powerful, plus a decent video card. Cons: crappy oem fan Have had this for a few months now and it works great, one of the only problems that I have seen is when using the over clock tool (gigabyte) I lose video from the inboard video card.
Summary: This CPU is great for any thing you want to do except maybe hardcore gaming. You can play HD movies off the hard drive. I play some older games off steam on my 42 inch tv. Bioshock 1 and 2 looked pretty good on it. I have a MSI motherboard and a single 4gb stick. 120gb ssd.
Summary: This is an awesome APU that I used for my friend's build! But beware of who you are buying it from. The person that I bought it from put NO PACKAGING MATERIAL AT ALL. It was just sliding around the small box the entire way here! Thank heavens that none of the pins were bent. Still. Really good APU.
Summary: I had reservations of using AMD over Intel, but I am very satisfied. I have not had any problems and it has handled everything I've thrown at it..... Using this in a homebuilt HTPC with 8 GB RAM.
Summary: I got this along with a ASUS F2A55-M/CSM - Socket FM2 AMD A55 Chipset MicroATX Motherboard for my grandsons gaming computer build. The project was completed without problems and he is very happy with the results. He does a lot of online gaming and the performance is great.
Summary: great speed and well protected when shipped. the only thing i didn't like was the height of the cpu cooling fan and heatsink wouldn't fit in the case i wanted so i had to order a slightly bigger case but it all worked out in the end.
