Summary: this processor I've used before for that reason I went back to buy and of course I recommend. I tell them I had a machine with an asus board games and played only high graphics performance but of course also had a good video card but the processor I responded in an impressive manner.
Summary: this CPU came in my custom gaming PC it was a lower budget machine and although most apps run very fast and multitasking doesn't slow it down. games like BF 3 and far cry 3 run good but don't expect more than 30 fps if your playing on higher setting but besides that this CPU is very good.
Summary: My son's hobby is to work on PC's to increase their performance. I gave him the processor for Christmas. It came from China and took a long time to arrive.. I told him that his gift was on a "slow boat from China", a take off on the "slow boat to China song" However; it arrived Christmas eve and...

Summary: i got this in my custom built gaming pc it works great but i would recommend getting a aftermarket heat sink because even my aftermarket cool master v8 liquid cooled heat sink the cpu get decently hot but does run games like planet side 2 witch relies on cpu more than a gpu run almost unplayable...
Summary: I have had this CPU for over 5+ years and it is one of the top of the line dual cores of its time. Had to replace the factory heat sink and fan but overall it was a great buy. CONS: This little bugger can get quite hot so make sure you apply thermal paste Properly and try to use a zalman cooler and...
Great CPU for AM-2 mobo. Extend the life of your old PC with this chip.

Summary: For the older AMD AM-2 motherboards this is the best chip you get short of the rare, power-hungry 6400+. It really is on par with the newer Regor chips from AMD, except that they use fewer watts, make less heat on a smaller die. I upgraded an older system (had an AMD Athlon x2-4200) for my son.
Summary: For me this was an upgrade from an Athlon 64 X2 3800 (2GHz), I was hoping for a bigger boost in performance, it did improve, I was just hoping for more. The one I got was the 125w thermal output unit, not the 89w unit I was looking for, but the description didn't specify.
