Decent for low end gaming

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 then cpu intensive games on mid-high gfx. I am upgrading to an I5 3570k along with getting a new motherboard because this doesn't cut it with what I want to do.
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). (EVGA GTX650 Base that I oc'd using Precision X by EVGA) It peaks at full capacity, and on a rainy day the lowest fps I've gotten on Skyrim maxed is low 40's. I love this CPU. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND.
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.
Summary: Nice and simple budget CPU. It's not going to score more than around a 6.6 for your Windows Experience Index, but this little guy is perfect for home PCs if all you're doing is some web browsing and light Microsoft Office work.
Great processor if you don't plan to use it for heavy gaming.

Summary: For the price, this processor does exactly what I needed it to do. It was upgrading from an aging Athlon x2 processor with a motherboard that still had AGP slots, so yeah, it definitely needed a basic upgrade. Love the speed it provides for what it will be doing.
Summary: Great little chip. I want to support AMD and the competition they foster, but it's going to be tough for them. For most single threaded applications, it beats its AMD counterparts in that price range. For typical office applications, surfing the Internet, etc., this chip will be terrific. The only thing that's missing is the virtualization and hyperthreading. But that really only comes into play in certain applications like running virtual machines.
Summary: WOW! I just finish my new build with that processor, 8GB RAM, SDD (120Gb) and combo BluRay drive, microATX mobo. I can restart computer in about 30 sec! (with some software installed already). Main thing is when I just use it for Internet browsing etc. it takes about 33 watts (max about 70!). Great performance. If you need good computer for web browsing, HD/DVD movies, writing is perfect. When you add good graphic card you can play games without problem :).
