Summary: If you're looking for a good quad-core CPU for cheap, you can't go wrong with the AMD Athlon x4 760K. With my Geforce GTX 750ti, games like Rise of the Triad, Skyrim and CS:GO run a lot better than with my previous dual-core CPU. If you're looking for a good FM2-socket CPU, this is the one to get.
Nice entry level processor for a reasonable price.

Summary: I read a lot of reviews on this processor and did my research and found that in the lower range gaming pcs this was the way to go. If you don't need to game in 4k at 50 frames then this is a cpu I recommend. It's 4 cores are able to handle most modern games on high - ultra with a decent graphics card at 25-35 fps. Though it may not be the biggest and the baddest, if you're going for value thi is your card.
Summary: If you are on a budget for a $500 PC then this goes great with a radeon 270 r9 gpu. I can run tf2 at highest settings with about 150 fps and left 4 dead 2 at ultra and hd texture mods at 60 fps.
Summary: fantastic cpu fast and reliable. great for gaming and the four cores also help when doing things like video editing streaming or just general multitasking. about the same power as a core i3 when overclocked.
Summary: If you have/want an Socket FM2 motherboard, want a cheap quad core processor (CPU) and you don't need the built in graphics provided by an "all-in-one" APU, (say you want more graphics power or already have a discrete GPU), then getting this Athlon 760K CPU is a great solution! I chose this as part of a budget gaming PC build.
Summary: I have a MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 motherboard which doesn't have integrated graphics so I bought a AMD A4-5300 Trinity 3.4Ghz Dual Core which is an APU chip that has the graphics built in with the CPU. The performance was alright for very low end gaming so I bought a Radeon R7 200 2GB GDDR5 which I'm quite happy with pulling decent FPS in all games mostly WoW. I decided to start live streaming or at least I wanted to try but that CPU wasn't working out.
I am happy with this processor but I am going go get ...

Summary: I am happy with this processor but I am going go get another fan, maybe the cooler master. It runs little hot with the stock fan. I originally ordered the 6 core and found out after the arrival that it didn't work with my MOBO. (AMDF2A88X-D3H).... So I sent it back and got this one. It is running fast enough now but I was thinking ahead as I may need more speed later.
