Summary: I was shocked to find out how fast this cheap cpu could go. I'm upgrading from a Core2Quad Q6600. The G630 easily matches the performance and then some despite 2 fewer cores. Running encoding software goes noticeably faster and programs seem more responsive.

Summary: It's still working pretty great almost 2 years after I purchased it for $64 for my family's desktop computer. The graphics performance was great for a while, but I now notice tiny little hitches when it tries to handle full 1080p video.
Summary: This processor came with my pre-built HP Pavilion, I knew nothing about computers when I bought it but wasn't very happy that I got terrible frames on games. I then added a msi twin frozr 560ti and combined with the processor and that gfx card I could run most gpu intensive games on high-max and...
Summary: Alright, so I assembled my new PC, and it booted up like a dream. It's a 450 dollar gaming rig, and I've used this solidly for about a month playing FC3, Bo2, Skyrim, and a few others maxed out at 1440x900 (max res on my monitor).
Summary: This works great for a quiet HTPC in the bedroom, plays 1080p content fine. Quiet and much cooler than an old dual core 3GHZ I had laying around, that was about 5ish years old. This one handles everything much better.
Summary: Just got this baby for a new HTPC build. Since I am only using the box to watch TV, stream movie via Netflix, and run XBMC, there was no need to get a more powerful CPU. It is not expensive and paired well with the ATI HD6450 I have. Fan is quiet as soon as i have enable quiet mode via BIOS.
Summary: Have been using these for a while and they work very well. They are like most processors though, they wok well but they'll go up in price quit once they become obsolete. For now, they're well worth the money.
