very fast apu
Love this processor its fast and doesn't overheat if you are not over clocking. I don't like the heatsink that come with them always buy a aftermarket one for best results.

Fast, Reliable, Cheap.
This is my first custom built pc. and its going to be my only one for a while i spent 500 dollars in total and its incredibly fast.
integrated graphics Radeon 65xx are awesome for any games and movies.

Great CPU
The best built in GPU
Decent pricing
New tech
Got this bad boy paired with ASUS F1A75-M Pro board and 8GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws X F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL humming perfectly.
It was meant for a low budget home system to start with. We ended up installing MasterCam X2 and Solid Works on it lol. Only for simple at home use though but it really surprised me how well it handles all that.

nothing can beat this at this price/ 7 hard disk all full with movies and games/ core2duo was suffering and was getting bottle necked/ wow what an upgrade. smooth and lightning fast

-Super impressive GPU
-Excellent CPU performance
-Can hardly believe what this thing outputs
-Socket compatible with older AM2 heatsinks, like ziggy 1283
-Included cooler isn't copper
I bought this wondering if I should crossfire it with a 6-series gfx card since I'll be gaming at 1920x1080. NOPE!

So far i've run it through L4D and L4D2, both of which are butter smooth. Sanctum. BFBC2 runs great at that high res as well.

This GPU can handle anything. Haven't O/Ced it yet. Its paired it with 4x4GB of memory at 1600mhz. Couldn't be happier.

Easy to set up on motherboard. Had no problem with the fan heatsink

Restricted to only 6600 class of graphic cards for radeon
Had no problems installing it and setting up the heatsink was a breeze. I was worried since I forgot to buy thermal paste with the order that I might encounter any problems. Great deal for those who don't want to spend a lot but want a good system to play on.

Built in GPU, decent price.
Not the beefiest processor.
Tried one of these out for a customer. Would normally buy a Phenom II quad core and a basic-medium AMD video card, but just got this instead. Made it a little cheaper and easier for me. I'll probably buy this again for similar systems, and I hope AMD can stay competitive with its CPUs.

Great video playback, decent gaming
Not easy to overclock (but really, if that's your goal this isn't on your list anyways)
Bought this for a HTPC that I also wanted able to play some older/less intensive games on occasion (WoW, TF2, etc). I set it up with MSI's mATX board and a low-profile case for a small footprint, since I really didn't care about card depth. Excellent playback results using all kinds of formats, fully capable at a variety of post-processing tasks. Gaming was also very decent, better than I had initially expected. I am also very surprised, my full system idles at ~30 watts, and my Kill-A-Watt says it hasn't peaked above 110 watts yet. All in all, definite value buy, I was pleased.

A Beast, I named it Skynet.
It make me sad to see it at 1% Usage during i wrote this
I build my new pc, i am not a pro but it s my forth one. And for the moment i really satified with the performance. I think i am good for at least 5 year with this one.

APU! AMD's latest Quad Core Processor with a fast graphics core inside working togeather as one
A very nice work of art from AMD. If your thinking of a starter computer and want great HD graphics this APU makes it an easy choice.
I tested the GPU for a while as an HTPC, it worked very good in this setup with perfect HD playback and very nice gaming graphics. after playing I setup the system for the task that I had purchased it for, making a video security system running the GPU on an ASUS F1A75-M PRO motherboard with 4 2 tb hard drives and Windows 7 pro for IP camera NVR storage and display system and loaded it down with 18 2 megapixel cameras on two monitors and used software enhanced video processing on each camera, it works perfect, any application that needs a strong CPU and accelerated graphics processing can use this low cost APU.
I am now very interested in trying the option of using the motherboard GPU crossfire with one of the recommended low price add on graphics boards for a new build of an HTPC/Gaming unit.
