Pros:

Benchmarks be darned, this CPU will do everything you need for the common household/gaming interest. I am able to max every game at 1600x900 resolution with my GTX560, and I am sure this CPU holds up at even higher resolutions. It was inexpensive, is easy to overclock, and the stock cooler runs well. I have never seen my CPU at higher than 55c with the stock cooler.

Yes, intel CPU's are inferior, but do not feel you are buying a piece of junk if you go with Bulldozer. It is quite capable and is perfect for budget gaming.

Cons:

I would definitely suggest looking into aftermarket heatsinks if you want to really push this CPU to its maximum potential. But that can be said for any CPU, really.

Other Thoughts:

Give it a shot, don't be dissuaded by intel fan boys that you are wasting money on this.
