    "Works pretty good! Everything seems to run fast and pretty smoothly with this. I thought things might run a little bit faster then they do, but all in all, I'm pleased. The price is really good for what you get. Installation is a bit difficult, so I recommend not doing it yourself unless your good with this type of stuff."

    "With all of the problems Intel is going through currently with their processors and hardware exploits, I think turning to AMD makes sense. For years it's always been thought that Intel supplied a higher quality processor than AMD, but over the past few years AMD has been surely catching up, and at this point they probably have a superior product, and without all of the Spectre baggage. I recommend AMD as a great alternative at a great price, especially the AMD FX 4-Core Black Edition FX-4300 which comes in with great performance at a great price!"
