Great for a budget build
Cheap Dual Core
Fast for an HTPC
I built two computers for my parents each with this processor. Their personal computer needed replacing (single core 1.7GHz Intel Celeron 768MB RAM. The other was for an HTPC. For what they do I believe both were overkill, but for the price it was worth it and means they won't need a new computer for years to come.

Cheap and Fast
Got this CPU to go along Gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2 motherboard. Fast and stays cool with stock heatsink. This thing is faster and at one fifth the price compared to the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ i got 3 years ago.

Budget oriented CPU, price is good
For the market its in, there is really no weakness
Paired this up with a Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H and worked right out of the box with no issues. Great for budget systems as it does have dual cores and a decent speed (2.8Ghz) but would not recommend this for gaming systems as for a little more you can get at least a quad core CPU. Heat does not seem to be an issue so the system noise level is low.

-Highly overclockable
-Low heat output
-Fast for a budget processor
-Included heatsink is garbage, but gets the job done
Used this with a Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H (DDR3 Version), I've since upgraded to an Athlon II X4 620. Great CPU for budget users and budget gamers, however if you have the 50$ to spare get an X4 620 or 630. Paired with a XFX Radeon HD 4770 it will play Borderlands at 1920x1200 quite well and with most details at High. Highly recommended for a budget gamer.

Fast clock, nice cache size, low power consumption, AM3
Not the same performance as an Intel...
This is a great budget processor but for higher performance Intel seems the way to go. Next build is Intel.

Runs Cool
Small Cache
This is a really good cpu for budget builds! It might have a small cache but its one quick little thing with some DDR2 ram and 8800 GT frommy previous rig. Can't wait to Overclock it and see how far it will go!

Experience: 7 Days
- Low cost
- Low power requirement
- Relatively low heat
- AMD!
- None
I bought this CPU for a low-end and cheap new system built. It's well enough for daily tasks like browsing, emails, facebook etc... watching movies too is no problems as well as light.medium gaming. I paired this CPU with a Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H and G.Skill DDR2 Memory. Works perfectly fine and runs Windows 7 nicely. Highly recommended for budget builds.

Experience: 15 Days
Cheap, easy to OC

I'm Doing mild gaming (1680 x 1050) with no problems.

Bundled heatsink isn't that good.
Bought this for a low cost build, and it does the job very well. The heatsink isn't very good, the temps run warmer than I'd like. Now granted bundled heatsinks usually aren't very good but this is one of the worst ones I've seen, but it gets the job done. If you are doing ANY overclocking I'd switch it out though. Other than that it works great, happy with how it performs.

-Decently fast
-Low power consumption
-Low heat
-Not quadcore
-Not Phenom II
-Pales in performance comparison to intel
This is great value so it gets 5 out of 5 from me. It does everything my mom needs it for and well at that. For the great price its a perfect buy for someone who just needs to do basic tasks. The Athlon II is the perfect replacement for he Athlon 64 series as it still maintains that excellent entry level value.
