Pros: Able to run most my games no less than 40 fps

Cons: Gets a bit hotter than I'd like it to (stock cooler)

I got this CPU for my starter build. It was cheap and it was fast. I have used it for Battlefield 4, Crysis, Fallout: New Vegas, and other popular games. Has run all of them above 40 fps (or higher) on high/ultra and only falling to 30 when I put Battlefield 4 on all ultra. For general computing it is snappy and responsive which is all I really care about. I will probably upgrade in the future to get more power, but this is an excellent CPU for your first build.

Pros: Six Cores for Sub-£100 - Good OC Potential

Cons: Not as fast in FSX as Phenom 970

I bought this to replace a broken Phenom II 970, and was surprised to find that alongside the HD6770 and 8GB of RAM, I experienced a fps drop in Flight Sim from 43fps average to 39 fps average. Clocked it up to 4.4GHZ with a CM Hyper 212+ and got a 5% increase over the Phenom. Good solid CPU, and I got it for £85 a few months ago.
