So I bought this processor 3 weeks ago and I can honestly say I am loving it. It's a dual core processor clocked at 3.0GHz AND its on Sandy Bridge architecture! Although it lacks the hyperthreading that its i3 cousins have, it still performs very nicely. It runs at about 25C using the stock cooler and will go up to 36C at full load still running silent however. The integrated GPU is not an Intel Graphics 2000/3000 however, it is just called Intel Graphics Family. Do not underestimate this however. This integrated GPU can easily max out Call of Duty 4 with no AA and run at 30-40 FPS and it plays Minecraft on full settings with a 128x128 texture pack at 45 FPS. If you are in the market for a budget processor that runs cool and don't want to pony up another $30 for the i3, definitely pick this processor up for even one of its little brothers, the G850 or G840.
