5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works fine for mmo gaming. Highest I've seen it go with stock fans is low 40s. Average idle is 30.

Cons: Obviously not the fastest.

Other Thoughts: Average fps on mmos (paired with a r9 270x, using max graphics and msaa @ 1080p):
Aion open world: 60 (capped)
Aion populated city: 30 (while loading) 60 when fully loaded

Blade and Soul open world: 55
Blade and Soul populated town: 30
Blade and Soul open world boss camping: 20
Blade and Soul full party dungeon with full mob pull: 15*

Tera open world: 70
Tera dungeon: 35
Tera Velika: 25-30
Tera Nexus full node: 10

*BnS with full mobs becomes a slideshow, but Tera nexus is still very playable. So fps might not be as accurate. It most likely is just a result of a slow hard drive and pulling the entire dungeon before everything is loaded. It does have SSD as a recommended requirement.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost like an i3

Pros: Received it very fast and I had no issues out of the box. The heatsink had thermal compound right on the bottom and I've yet to have any problems with overheating (knock on wood), it is running at a stable 25 degrees Celsius which is really good I know. It is paired with 4gb of RAM and Intel HD Graphics, which serves my purposes for now. I can actually run Fallout: New Vegas with no lag with just onboard graphics on medium settings, granted its not a graphic intensive game and medium settings aren't high but still the game doesn't crash on me and my Pentium seems to be able to take whatever I throw at it. It is very fast and very responsive! I honestly see no difference between this and an i3, if I were you I would simply buy this over an i3, you'll get practically the same performance for a much lower price. Great for a budget build!!

Cons: Not quad core, only dual core but oh well, not really a con since I knew that when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a processor that will be able to handle most tasks thrown at it but for a cheap price, this is the one to go with no doubt! Don't expect to do any high end video editing or high end graphic intensive gaming but if you're a moderate PC gamer and you don't want to spend too much on a CPU then the Pentium G2020 is what you want! Also this was for my first PC build ever and I was very pleased that it worked as soon as I locked it into my socket.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW!

Pros: When I bought this I was just looking for a cheap processor for a budget build. It has by far exceeded my expectations. It is super fast never any hang-ups. Graphics power is also pretty good I play many games with integrated graphics which was a surprise because I figured I wasn't going to be able to play games with it when I purchased it. Of course if you want to play modern high end games you need to add a graphics card. Honestly I don't see the point in getting any processor beyond this. i3's cost about double for a minimal difference in performance. This is really the most bang for the buck I would recommend this processor to anyone looking to build a PC for web surfing, video streaming, or lower-end gaming with integrated graphics.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I paired this with a Asrock z77 pro 3 motherboard and 4GB ram.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Processor for Budget Builds

Pros: Built a budget system around this unit for a customer and was pleasantly surprised by how snappy this inexpensive processor was. The graphics core is more than adequate for basic computing chores.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsNice, energy efficient chip

Pros: 55W, 22nm, dual core, Intel HD Graphics built in, and affordable. Great for ITX HTPC/NAS builds. Yes, not really for gaming use. Some people say Ivy Bridge is a better chip design than Sandy Bridge and even Haswell. Sometimes newer designs are not always necessarily better... Of course next year's chips from Intel might be a different story since 14nm is coming which is crazy...I'm assuming the TDP on those will be like half or less than this even at 22nm and quad core or more...

Cons: That is isn't 1W with 100 cores yet? I'm sure it will be soon enough...

Other Thoughts: Keep up the great work Intel...I'd love to see the inside of your $5 Billion Dollar Fab... That's some amazing tech to make these chips....

Boy has Tick/Tock spoiled us! (Thanks to AMD and Dirk Meyer of course for giving Intel that needed kick in their behind!)

4 out of 5 eggsBoy was I wrong

Pros: I got this CPU since I have a gaming Desktop and it's in my living room and when I have visitors I don't like when they ask to use my computer and have to come into my room.So I am building a cheap desktop for basic use and I will put this in my living room for when I have visitors.
I got this CPU with a excellent AMD Radeon 6950 GPU and I was thinking of getting a AMD A10 CPU/GPU but I heard they overheat and this one was cheapier. Anyways with this CPU and the GPU I bought for this alongside a blu ray player and 8gb of ram and etc.I costed me about $450 for everything since I bought this stuff on cyber Monday.
I tryed to see how good this PC was so I played Metro 2033 and it can run it at high settings with it getting 45fps.I also have a 900p screen resolution monitor instead of a 1080p monitor like I do with my gaming PC because I knew it would need more resources.Also I can play battlefield3 at high settings and get 45fps.So overall I build a good Desktop.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Good CPU and I'm surprised since my grandma has a desktop with this same CPU but also has a bad graphics card but can do your daily tasks.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good (first impression)

Pros: Install was quick and easy, so far so good. Just finished installing Windows in a new build and am doing the countless rounds of windows updates.

Cons: None so far, although I've only just installed it. Not crazy about the stock Intel cooler, but it gets the job done.

Other Thoughts: It's a processor. It processes. Not much else you can say. Using it in a home office machine, perfect for the job without being overkill.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat budget CPU

Pros: Great super low budget gaming CPU. Plays Planetside 2 almost as fast as my i3 based system that was double the price!

Cons: None at this price

Other Thoughts: Bought this CPU for a second PC that I wanted to put in the living room for basic computer usage. Wasn't planning on doing much gaming on it, as I have an i3 based system for that. However, I wanted to see how Planetside 2 would run on it. I wasn't expecting much out of a $67 chip ...boy was I wrong! Paired this bad boy with a Radeon 7770 and 8 gigs of ram and can consistently get 45 to 60 fps on medium/high settings. That's pretty amazing performance for such a cheap piece of silicon. My other PC has an i3 ivy @ 3.3GHz that cost twice as much. The video card, motherboard, and memory are all the same in both systems, so its a great comparison. This Pentium performs nearly as well as the i3. The difference in Planetside 2 is only a few fps, and I would attribute that to the higher clock speed of the i3. I haven't done any real benchmarking yet, but so far this thing looks like a great budget gaming CPU.
