5 out of 5 eggsEnormous value for the right type of consumer

Pros: Huge value. Fast enough as long as you're not into hardcore gaming. Installed it in my parent's new computer. The built in GPU is faster than entry-level dedicated graphics cards, and will be perfect for their multimedia use.

Cons: None so far. Very pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful!

Pros: It works great! The graphics are good.
Ive played DDO, DCUO, Everquest II, Need for speed World and it runs them all very well. I was able to get 20-40FPS on all these games at or slightly below medium settings. I was able to easily overclock it by changing the CPU ratio to 38 to get 3.8Ghz.

Cons: This APU gets really hot make sure you have good cooling. While playing games I have seen the temperatures reach 70-80C. Most games make the temperature stay at around 60-68C It will help if you turn up the CPU fan to 100%. I also made the temperature go down by Disabling Turbo Core tech and turning on Cool n Quiet.
The stock CPU heat-sink and fan aren't very good. The heat isn't a big problem so no eggs taken off.

Other Thoughts: I used the stock heatsink and fan. I also was not using Dual Graphics. I tried overclocking to 3.9Ghz but the temperatures got to 80C so I kept it at 3.8Ghz. With 3.8Ghz its temperature is 30-40C at idle and with normal gaming stress its at 60-65C. I had the A78M-E35 Motherboard. Others may not get the same results I've gotten.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Saves money for a budget build by not needing buy a dedicated graphics card.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Good to give to none gamer parents or others, though I did not test games on it, it would probably work for them too.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cost and performance.
Included fan is fine for basic web surfing and light programs and is pretty quiet.

Cons: Like most AMD, they tend to run a bit warmer than other options, but nothing I'd complain about.

Other Thoughts: Used this for a basic home pc for a relative and is quite honestly overkill for what they use it for. It's quite a little powerhouse and runs warm with stock cooler, but nothing to worry about. I could easily see this being used for a light gaming machine with an after maket cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a great little quad core APU

Pros: This APU works great for HTPC as well as general everyday use.

Cons: Absolutely none, as long as you do not try to overclock it or cram it into a micro case without a proper cooling solution.

Other Thoughts: It stays cool to the touch (on the stock cooler) in an NZXT Gamma Classic Series case with an ECS A75F2-A2 ATX motherboard, 2x4 GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 memory, WD "blue" 1TB hard drive, LG optical drive, Corsair CX430 power supply, and Ubuntu 13.1/XBMC setup for HTPC use.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU for a budget

Pros: This CPU is very powerful for the price point and does exactly what is needed. I have it in a new HTPC and the interface is much snappier than it had been with my previous CPU, also the on board graphics are good enough to run full high def video and fast forward and skip forward without any lag. Blu-Ray also runs great.

Cons: This will play some modern games, but barely. Tested with Skyrim on low settings and its playable, but it still stutters. The stock heat sink is terrible and loud. I swapped it out for a Noctua low profile cooler which works much better.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for a budget machine. It supports additional graphics cards if you want this to game, but for me integrated CPU/GPU and great high def video decoding made this perfect for an HTPC.

4 out of 5 eggsGo with the A10

Pros: Plays most games on low settings. Works as you would expect it to

Cons: RUNS HOT!!!, you definitely need good aiflow or a good cooler.

Other Thoughts: I was on the fence in between this and the A10 because of the small price difference. I have since gotten an A10 and it is worth the extra few bucks
