Summary: I paired this with a Asrock z77 pro 3 motherboard and 4GB ram.
Pros: When I bought this I was just looking for a cheap processor for a budget build. It has by far exceeded my expectations. It is super fast never any hang-ups. Graphics power is also pretty good I play many games with integrated graphics which was a surprise because I figured I wasn't going to be able to play games with it when I purchased it. Of course if you want to play modern high end games you need to add a graphics card. Honestly I don't see the point in getting an...
Summary: I bought this CPU for a family member budget build. It was for an older lady who did nothing beyond check emails and facebook. So this CPU isnt dead slow, nor the fastest, but its just right for what she needs. Everything was snappy for Windows 7.
Summary: Good CPU and I'm surprised since my grandma has a desktop with this same CPU but also has a bad graphics card but can do your daily tasks.
Pros: I got this CPU since I have a gaming Desktop and it's in my living room and when I have visitors I don't like when they ask to use my computer and have to come into my room.So I am building a cheap desktop for basic use and I will put this in my living room for when I have visitors.
Summary: Bought this CPU for a second PC that I wanted to put in the living room for basic computer usage. Wasn't planning on doing much gaming on it, as I have an i3 based system for that. However, I wanted to see how Planetside 2 would run on it. I wasn't expecting much out of a $67 chip ...boy was I wrong! Paired this bad boy with a Radeon 7770 and 8 gigs of ram and can consistently get 45 to 60 fps on medium/high settings.
Pros: Great super low budget gaming CPU. Plays Planetside 2 almost as fast as my i3 based system that was double the price!
Summary: Bought this for a budget gaming build and it works great. Came ready to install and had no hiccups booting up the first time. Only thing is that it didn't come with very thorough instructions so a first time computer builder may need to do a little searching but otherwise a great CPU.
