Pros:

Fast, reliable, price

Cons:

Not overclockable ... from what i've read online

Other Thoughts:

Im mainly a gamer. I buy games and pc parts based on the "wait a year" theory, yesterdays games and today's budget gear makes for a great gaming approach and is easy on the wallet. I bought this setup with that in mind:
Pentium G860
ASrock H77M
Radeon HD 6670 1gb
G.Skill 8GB Ram (2X4)

I bought this based on a Toms Hardware article. Doing google searches on forums etc I couldnt find a lot of people recommending it, every conversation I found about it people were recommending what they said was a better alternative. I bought it anyway and could not be more pleased for the price.

I play a lot of flight sims (Rise Of Flight, Falcon BMS, FSX) and have also ran Far Cry 3, GTA IV and Fallout 3, Silent Hunter Wolves of the Pacific. This setup plays them far better than the forum talk would have you believe. With this setup I can't max the graphics on some of the latest titles but it hangs in there. With some time tweaking graphic settings this CPU is quite capable. Kept in perspective (price vs performance) I don't think you can go wrong.

Based on my experience most of the negative talk online is from people who read charts and have no real experience with this chip.

If you follow such things. On 3DMark06, with the GPU overclocked via CCC, I get a score of 9255.
