2 January 2012
Summary: I thought it would be faster but it works great. Not much faster than my 2.8 x 2 I really don't wont to write a book on this, 50 characters would be enough, Pleas change your web page rules!!!!
Summary: The Amd Athlon II x4 630 is probably the best under one hundred dollar processor I have ever bought. It runs multiple programs at once renders thing on programs like Autodesk's Maya or Blender with ease. It also pared with 4gb of Ram a 9600gso special edition and a 600 watt power supply has absolutely every game i have thrown at with the highest graphics enabled with ease.
