i bought this expecting a reasonably cheap quadcore light gaming processor but light was not this in any way. i originally was going to sell the computer i built but with this processor in it i have decided to sell my other computer and keep this one (my other computer was an old flimsy i5 build).
FPS wise this runs pretty much all games at ultra or high depending on your graphics card. In my case a nvdia gtx 670.(All games on ultra graphics settings)
Total War Shogun 2: 60-80fps
Battlefield 3: 40-60
Crysis 2: 60-80
Skyrim(with high-rez textures): 120-140
Minecraft(all settings on high qualty) 200-240 (on performance settings): 500-750
All in all i am very impressed and would very highly recommend this processor.
