Great processor low price

J. T. Poole "James", Amazon
23 June 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to upgrade my daughter's old core 2 duo computer. This thing has no problem pushing a geforce gtx580. She mainly uses her computer to watch YouTube videos, plays Star Wars Galaxies and miscellaneous browser based games. She edits videos and movies (with windows movie maker) with ease. She also does Microsoft PowerPoint for school...thus is a top notch processes that more than fulfills the above needs.

Impressive for a duel core

Charles Glydewell, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: It's a sturdy processor with some power. This is a processor that has 2 faces. If your looking to save a couple bucks but still get some power get this processor. If your looking to use it for gaming and can afford a higher end quad core or higher go with that. The reason I'm saying that isn't because this CPU can't handle gaming because it can. I'm saying that because the next generation of games will require better processors.

Good processor!

Antonio Rocha, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: Yes this processor is pretty good! I mean I don't necessarily like it i'm a gamer and like recording / rendering video's etc and it is pretty slow in these things (I think it even bottlenecks my video card). I acknowledged that this isn't necessarily a gaming processor but yeah it's still pretty good for the price!

Great Starter CPU

jonathan s., Amazon

  • Summary: Great starter CPU. Good for entry level gaming, home and office applications. Affordable, and yet performs. It's a dual core that has 2 virtual cores, so it acts like a quad. Overall, though, if you're looking for reliability, Intel has always been at the top of the industry.

  • Summary: It does what it does, but it does feel a little outdated. Combo'ed w/ my 7850, it runs most games on mid to high settings.

i3 cool

Scott H., Amazon
22 September 2013
  • Summary: I USED THIS FOR A HTPC BUILD MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR THAT PURPOSE, WITH STAND ALONE VIDEO CARD.I DID NOT GIVE IT A 5 STAR BECAUSE I HAVE SYSTEM WITH AN I5 3570K. THAT BEING SAID I DO HAVE TO ADMIT IT IS QUITE FAST FOR DESKTOP STUFF VERY IMPRESSED. Sorry about the cap lock to lazy.Just wanted to add for the Die hard AMD fans I do like AMD products and all my video cards (5 builds) all have Amd video cards But, intel cores are equal to 1.5+ cores of Amd.

Best bang for the buck from Intel

Capitalist, Amazon
21 July 2013
  • Summary: Hoping it is good as the MSI motherboard I bought for it is D.O.A. Have had good luck with i3-3225 and expect this one to be just as good for non gaming use.

  • Summary: Chip works great but I tend to think it is a bit pricey, it plays HD video fine and does regular office tasks and internet browsing easily. Used it in a build for myself for 2 months before selling it to my brother, he seems to love it and is very satisfied with it. This is the ideal chip for non power users when it goes on sale or is discounted in a bundle with a motherboard. 4/5 stars because it isn't well priced.
  • Pros: Great chip, performs well. Affordable when it goes on sale. Low power consumption.
  • Cons: Sort of expensive for a pretty basic chip. I would either go for a cheaper chip or just jump to an i5 instead of this at regular price.
