Other Thoughts:

This is a great processor, especially for the price. I've had issues with Intel processors in my last two builds, and I built an AMD CPU powered machine for a friend a few years ago. I decided to give AMD a try, and I have not been disappointed. So far, it has exceeded the performance on a previous i5 build, and while it may not be a powerhouse like an i7, I'm sure that's why AMD has eight core processors available.

For my needs, which is HD video and sound editing, and some light gaming in Steam in my spare time, this processor is proving to be a beast and has eaten everything I've thrown at it without ever getting to even 50% usage. I feel that I'll be using AMD powered machines for a very long time to come, as Intel's price to performance ratio, in my opinion, does not come close to matching what AMD can offer. Yeah, Intel processors may perform a bit better, but it's not worth the extra several hundred dollars for my needs.

I would recommend this for anyone looking to get a multi-core processor that doesn't want to shell out a ton of money. I haven't even had to overclock it, and the performance has been absolutely great.
