Pros: Fast. Dependable. No issues.
I'm not an over-clocker, so all I can say is it runs smooth, and relatively cool compared to earlier versions I have owned (Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge).
Other Thoughts: Ever since multi core chips arrived, I have insisted on nothing but Intel chips. AMD had it's glory day with the Athlon XP line, but quickly lost ground in the multi core battle.
Having built Intel and AMD machines (for customers), I can honestly say Intel is FAR superior with less game compatibility issues, and less crashes than AMD based chips. The only possible benefit I could ever really see buying an AMD is price. As long as I can afford Intel.....Intel it will be.

Cons: My first attempt to review this item was either rejected or deleted due to my overly strong opinions about it.
I will be nicer now.
Nothing about the item worked, and was damaged upon arrival due to shipping techniques of fulfillment seller.
Other Thoughts: Stay away.
Pros: Price. Compact.
I purchased this to upgrade the video card in my Shuttle HTPC that wasn't acting nicely with an upgrade to Win 8.
I didn't need a "gamer" card, just one that was compact enough for my case, displayed Blu-ray well through a HDMI connection, and maybe able to play a few games as well. Worked well out of the box, and I'm quite happy with it. Good budget card.
Other Thoughts: This was not purchased for my main machine, where most of my gaming is done....so I can't elaborate on how well it will do with new or semi recent games. GREAT VALUE.READ FULL REVIEW
