Pros: This is an update to my earlier review on this, and I must say, this thing is pretty amazing. I have gotten Battlefield 3 to get medium settings with high texture quality at 1440x900 resolution, and it rarely lags, even on 64 player servers with a whole bunch of nonsense going on. It also puts Diablo 3 to shame, getting a constant 60 frames, with lows coming from lag spikes in my connection I would think, and highs soaring into the 100s, and this is with vsinc on mind...
Summary: This processor handles very well for an average user. I would recommend purchasing an i5 instead if you are looking to game, as this processor does lag on the higher demanding games. However, it is satisfactory for my purposes and was well worth the purchase.
Summary: The processor works great! Great performance for the price, and it can make a solid-fast PC for daily use on regular applications.... It's just 2 cores, but it is also so cheap, so, you never lose!
Summary: I bought this for my first rig to play games and help me learn some computer science. It can handle probably any game with no problems, just make sure you got a decent gpu. This card is a great entry level CPU for gaming, and all my programs were quick and responsive. I highly recommend this to anyone on a tight budget.
Pros: Installation was easy. I'm using in a media center PC. My case/motherboard is Shuttle SH67H3, which is a small-form factor system. Because the SH67H3 comes with its own integrated cooling system, I didn't use the heat sink and fan that came with the processor, although they might have (just barely) fit in the case from the look of it.
Cons: None thus far. A great processor for a solid price.
