AMD Sempron 145 Sargas Single-Core 2.8GHz Socket AM3 45W Desktop Processor SDX145HBGMBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Use this to build a simple, inexpensive game machine for my mother. It unlocked into a dual core is why I used it. She wanted to play WoW, now she's hooked. Originally the CPU was used for the computer the runs my CNC router.

Cons: none

ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great board, great for overclocking although I don't leave my machine overclocked. I overclock for fun. I bought this board when I bought an FX8350 because I run a tri-crossfire setup and the gigabyte board I was using did not support the 8350.

Cons: really expensive, otherwise none.

Intel Core i3-3225 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.3GHz LGA 1155 55W Desktop Processor                                                                                   Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I33225
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast for a dual core, I use it in one of my file servers. I did play some games, such as WoW, on it to test the HD 4000 graphics and was surprised. Intel's HD graphics have come a long way.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This CPU would make a very capable gaming machine when paired with a good GPU. I'd never use it for gaming since this one of the lowest end CPUs I own.
