Summary: I used this to replace a free 2010 E Machine EM 1352 CPU I received which had a AMD 160u, which was the worst CPU I ever used...Win 7 performance went from 3.1 to 6.5 out of 8 and must use DDR 3 Ram 1333 mhz and will need a better Power Supply based on Video Card used...

Pros: There was a time that AMD processors had a reputation of running a bit hot but those issues are firmly in the past. AMD processors are always a good "bang for the buck" purchase when building your own PC. This AMD Ahthlon II X2 255 3.1GHz processor has an excellent L2 cache and scores in the high...
