An excellent alternative....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AMD FX8320 Black Edition 8 Core (3.5/4.0GHz, 8MB Level 3 Cache, 8MB Level 2 Cache, Socket AM3+, 125W, Retail Boxed) (Personal Computers)
As a geeky techie type I always tend to build AMD systems rather than Intel ones (even though they're both as easy these days, I still remember a decade ago when Intel builds were a nightmare!). This chip is as easy as they ever are to install, and performance-wise my computer flies along! Mind you, it did with the 6-core it previously had installed! To be honest, in this day and age unless you are constantly running at 100% CPU the amount of cores these days tends to be irrelevant but this bumped my Windows score up to 7.8, so I have almost achieved speedy perfection, only held back by the graphics!
Watch this space for a graphics card review soon ;)
