Summary: My processor had become the bottleneck of my gaming rig, where it wasn't meeting the recommended requirements of many games that my GPU could handle fine. This lead to some choppy framerates, stutters and random crashes in some of the more demanding games. I knew it was time to get something better.
Summary: love this cpu it does all what i need from video editing gaming, audio editing. lots and lots of power i have maxed it out and still have a truck load of performance to go. i never over clocked because their is no need to over clock any quad core.
Summary: I'm not a fanboy for any company; I go with what my requirements are. When my requirements are for a low power consumption CPU, Intel is not the way to go. I needed to build a new HTPC for my wife on her TV. She has low requirements, watch videos, hulu, Netflix, etc.
Summary: I've been running the 925 HARD for over a year now, and she just keeps coming back for more! Hours of video transcoding, hardcore gaming (FEAR 1&2, Bioshock 1&2, L4D, etc) multimedia watching and creating, you name it I do it and the AMD 925 takes it like a champ!
Summary: I used this as part of an upgrade to my office computer. Installed in a Gigabyte M68MT-D3 main board. It is very fast and stable with either Windows 7 or Windows XP, even with many programs open at once. Excellent value for the price paid!
