"Horrible" and "poor choice" IS trolling. It is not a poor choice in any way. That is pure hyperbole.
Ivy and Haswell quads perform better than any vishera in 95% of games. Since those are the competitors to this processor that makes Vishera chip a poor choice for gaming. Well balanced? No it's strengths are strictly multithreaded, the second you use software that isn't extremely threaded it gets destroyed.
You keep rambling about multithreaded performance being good and trying to change the subject but if you would actually read you would see that I agreed with those parts, I'm only correcting your false statement of "vishera is great for gaming".
