Summary: This was an excellent purchase for my new machine. It was cheaper than at least two other sites selling the same item. I would purchase from Amazon again if I build a different machine. I would recommend this for beginner to intermediate computer users but not for gamers.
Summary: Bought this, along with a new mother board , to upgrade an old computer for use in an entertainment system. Works well in that application. Bought a cheap NVIDIA video card but so far not using it because the built in graphics processor easily handles a 50 inch HDTV. Running Linux.
Summary: Exceeded my expectations. I had low standards for this CPU. Not anymore, not much to say about this CPU, if your a bit skeptical for it then just think about it if your on a budget build it will work for you.
Summary: I got this CPU because based on the research I'd done for a few days, this was clearly the best bang for you buck. Not only did I save a lot of money with it, it's performance is outstanding! I am very pleased with this little chip and to anyone with a budget, I recommend this CPU.
Summary: This processor just simply blew me away. Windows 8 runs very smoothly and all my other applications run great. Intel HD graphics are pretty good as well. This processor got pretty good scores on windows experience.
Summary: I put this processor into a modest build, it's been great so far! Here's the build: This processor 8GB 1333 RAM 1TB Hard Drive Geforce 630 Before the Geforce 630, I ran Far Cry 3 Blood dragon and the Final Fantasy XIV:ARR benchmark. This processor ran Blood dragon at lowest settings at a more than playable frame rate. FFXIV also ran at a decent frame rate with medium settings. So I'd say this processor has a more than capable built-in video processor.
