I just wanted a cheap system that would run up to date games but I didn't want to pay much to get it. After some extensive research I discovered this little gem of a processor. I installed X3: Albion Prelude (single core intensive space sim) and ran it at top settings then created a huge battle sequence that used to make my old dual core cpu cry and the 760K handled it with no trouble at all. I'm really happy with this cpu and at under £65 it is a steal! There are only a couple of issues I have with it that meant I couldn't give it all five stars. Firstly, although it runs on socket FM2 motherboards like the APU series it doesn't include an integrated gpu and so you'll need to have/buy a dedicated one. Also it runs at 100w which is the same as the A10-6800K and that just seems a bit excessive. Other than that it is a great buy and I do not regret the purchase one little bit.

Pros: Cheap (and good value), Powerful enough for entry/mid level gaming.
Cons: No integrated gpu, uses a bit too much power.

This quad core processor comes with a heatsink which is useful to get the processor up and running straight out of the box. The CPU runs smoothly and runs most games like GTA V at medium settings with a GTX 650 which is fine for a budget processor like this one. The CPU works great for rendering videos and images and is good for video editing with Sony Vegas. It is capable of running many tasks at once which is what a quad core should be expected to do. I would recommend this CPU to first time builders or those looking to build a budget PC as it can get a bit slow at times.

The best CPU I've had so far.

It works great, using only 3% usage when running Minecraft.

The highest I've seen so far in usage is 40% when running Spotify, Skype, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2/Ghosts and Steam, as well as Origin.

Easily overclocked as well to become more powerful.

Really good low end APU with surprisingly good overclocking capabilities! Used this is my old budget gaming pc and managed to get it overclocked to 4.8ghz! Obviously don't use the stock cooler (I was using a cooler Master sedion 120v) and was getting idle temps at 42°C and 68°C under full load. Was fine for gaming before I built a more beefed up gaming rig for around 5x as much but if your on a tight budget get this!

Fan on cooler was cracked out of its frame, but I fixed that. Pin was out of alignment on CPU but I "GENTLY" moved it back into place and build went as planned.

Be careful, probably the MOST delicate part of a build.

Per core performance is some improvement on older generation athlon/core 2 CPUs, but not as much as you'd come to expect. Although Intel still seem to beat AMD on delivering improved raw power, extra cores can really speed up things like video encoding. This is cheaper than an i3 and can do better with 4 cores vs 2 HT cores. A pentium dual core would have been cheaper still, but I wanted quad core for a real upgrade. If you want raw power and 4 cores than you'd have to fork out at least as much again for an i5, so this is a good budget option if you want to move up from a dual core setup.

On the less good side though, this is a boxed product, but the heatsink is basic and the fan is small and thin (but PWM). Thermal stuff is pre-applied and it fitted easy to my motherboard. I haven't overclocked because the temperature readings are dodgy to say the least, but I don't know if that's due to lack of support for the motherboard or what. AMD's own overdrive software gave crazy readouts.

I'm not an expert on CPUs, but This is just right for what I need, bought for a gaming PC build. With my 4gb ram and sapphire HD6570 I've had it running games like Dayz, European Trucks 2, Elder scrolls online and farcry 3 just fine on medium settings. It's a good cpu to start with at the moment, but will need upgrading in maybe a year or two due to demands from the latest games.

I bought this because I couldn't play Dragon Age: Inquisition without a quad core processor. I've now saved Thedas three times and I'm beginning my fourth. Definitely worth the price to me, I don't think you'll find a better processor for less.
