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: Bought this to upgrade a kids PC. Paired it with the MSI ZH77A-G43 mobo, been rock solid from initial post on. Plays all their games well enough for their liking, with the EVGA GT640 video card. Games such as World of Tanks, Planetside 2, Hawkens, Minecraft, Ghost Sniper, Doom3 series.
Summary: I used this processor along with 6gbram and my old 6970 and a B75 chipset to make a backup Home Gaming PC. Not sure why more aren't trying this processor for the unbeatable price. I use this setup to run MMO's on a 61' 1080P set and it runs great.
Summary: This thing is cheap and really fast can beat processors like e8400, e8500. For this price you cant get another processor like this one, pair this with a b75 motherboard and you got a really nice cheap setup that can run a lot of new games at decent framerates
