Pros:

Great budget gaming CPU. I play Skyrim, Assassins Creed 4, DayZ and Bioshock Infinite and this processor keeps me close to 60fps in all of them with my GTX 760. Great for PCSX2, runs Shadow of the Colossus (the most demanding game for the PS2 emulator) without a problem. Definitely the best ~$125 processor when I bought this in July 2012.

Cons:

Not a quadcore. No overclocking options. Better 3rd/4th generation i3s out now.

Other Thoughts:

Has lasted me a year and a half without any hiccups at all. Plan on upgrading to an i7 for my gaming rig soon and throwing this CPU into a low wattage server/HTPC.
