great little cpu for 99% of people. used in a budget gaming rig built for a friend. money is better spent on GPU and that's exactly what we did. paired with a radeon 7850 with no bottlenecking.
Paired it with a matx B75 asus mobo, for a budget gaming rig with a radeon 7750. With an 120G SSD it goes from pressing the power button to the login screen in win 7 in 20 seconds on the watch. Compared with my old E6500 the games I play look so much better - not the newest, more like Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3. Excellent value. Plus, power consumption is low so I was able to get away with an SFX PS at 300W on my rig.
This was for HTPC build. Paired this with a ssd and it feels just as fast as my i3/i5 for running win7, xbmc, and surfing. Intel HD graphics is more then enough for streaming 1080p video through xbmc. I did buy a discrete and have both running atm. GT 610 running my tv and Intel HD running a small lcd.
Bought my first for use in an HTPC and it has performed flawlessly for me in an H67 based board...
The second one was put into a budget build with a B75 chipset. At first I had constant BSOD due to video, but it turns out that if you install the video drivers before installing Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 then that is to be expected. Once I got that all worked out I had no issues at all and it has been a champ.
This is my second one and I remain impressed with the features/performance/value. Dual core handles applications with relative ease. Great budget CPU with adequate performance. In retail package comes with cooler. Can be upgraded later on as it is made for upgrade compatible 1155 socket.
Ce processeur est une très bonne affaire pour la majorité des utilisations. Il est capable de tout et même des jeux les plus gourments. À 60$ c'est quand même surprenant ce qu'on obtient pour ce prix. Il n'est pas recommendé pour ceux qui font de l'encodage video mais pour le reste il est suffisament puissant. Un très bon achat.
As mentioned, AMD used to do well in the budget area, as Intel used to demand a premium for its budget CPUs. However, this little cheapy is fast for the price. I downgraded from an i5 2500K and haven't noticed a difference in the games I play. It's nice that games are so dependent on video cards now cuz u can build a fast system for cheap. I paired this up with a $50 gigabyte board and 16GB of ram and that is a alot of bang for the buck... and intel stuff is always rock solid and stable.
