Pros: Runs most games on medium-ultra high setting
Cons: Runs hot
Other Thoughts: This chip is definitely worth building around. With Radeon HD 7660 built in, you can play most games at 1920x1080 and Medium-Ultra settings with AT LEAST 30 FPS. I know many of you enthusiest don't appreciate that you have push the Anit-Aliasing up pretty high in order to be able to do that, but if you don't have a superiority complex, this chip is fantastic. I play mostly open world sandbox games like Skyrim and Fallout on HIgh settings with anti alliasing all the way up and runs great. There is one thing I must remind you all though. Because it does have built in gpu, the cpu and gpu share your ram memory. Therefore you MUST have great ram to really get the most out of this APU. I have 16gb HyperX Furies at 1866Mhz. This is a must with APUs but if you save money on a graphics card you can probably get some really good ram to really push this baby to it's potential.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low profile, beautiful design. Clocked to 1866 straight out of the box. Significant boost.
Cons: None as of yet.
Other Thoughts: I got these 1 in black and 1 in red. I love that they are super low profile and yet still standout beautifully in my case. I had only 8gb in before and after adding a second stick it was a dramatic boost for my APU. If you decided to make a budget build and want put you CPU money into some better ram these are the ones to go with. Runs like a champ.READ FULL REVIEW
