Summary: I assembled a desktop pc for my nephew using this processor, 8GB of DDR3 RAM and an Nvidia GT630 video card with 2GB of DDR3 on board. This processor scored a 7.6 out of 7.9 in the Windows Experience index and performs flawlessly installed in the Asus M5A-78LM motherboard I used for the build. I recommend this CPU.
