Not quite a Quad-Core Processor

Summary: A 3.6 GHz Quad-Core processor that's fast and cheap. This processor is inferior to many of the Intel Core series processors and even AMD's on Phenom II lineup. Not exactly an upgrade, but if you need a cheap processor with AVX support this is the one for you.
Summary: It was everything I was looking for. Aside from the lacking graphics card which I replaced a few days later with a geforce gtx 760 and a new power supply (evga bronze 600) I would suggest this to anyone wanting an easy way to break into the building scene of the PC world.
Summary: The processor is great for a medium budget build but do be careful with the kind of motherboard you choose for it. Certain motherboards have little to no heat distribution for the VRM's which this and other higher end AMD FX processors are known to heat up.
Works out of the box, but will need upgrades almost immediately

Summary: I bought this PC a year ago this month. Over that year, I made this 600 dollar beginner into a formidable gaming PC. Once thing you'll notice is the low quality of the graphics card. The GT 520s are about 4 or 5 years out of date, and will not run your new games at the speeds you want.
Summary: I did purchase this for the sake of upgrading my computer, however I had a different video card to replace the one this came in. Word of warning: if you want to upgrade this computer like I did, you will need to buy a higher quality power supply!
Summary: Bought this to power a FreeNAS 8.3 box that I was building as a replacement for a dated board / Q6600 processor. It has plenty of power to serve up multiple 1080p video streams with 7.1 audio via PS3 and to also allow streaming from several phones.
