    "Great processor. Can handle whatever I throw at it. Night and day, it's the way to be. My wife bought this for me for Christmas. I was shocked she made such a great selection because she's not a techie, like me, heck, she's not even a Treckie like me! But, like I says, this is too dope to pass up, baby!"

    "A decent processor at a decent price. Its certainly good enough for a budget PC build but I think its worth the few dollars more to go with a quality Intel chip from the Coffee Lake series. The AMD processors also tend to have issues with a lot of RAM out there often only working with the more expensive RAM with better latency and with RAM prices being what they are these days you end up paying just as much if you would have gotten a good Intel CPU with less expensive RAM.

    "This processor is a bit dated, but good for basic everyday computing and light gaming. This places older games very well without having to purchase a separate graphics card. It doesn't handle modern games very well at 1080p, but I can play quite a few titles on low settings."

    "For the price this AMD processor is nearly unbeatable. Intel processors are great and all, however the value proposition of this CPU is astounding and I've gotten many years of use out of it. I've had no problem playing games along with my GTX 1070 graphics card."

    "Runs games well. according to PC bottleneck calculator, it works splendid with anything thru 1080ti down to 1060. I have windows 7, and one open source patch to enable security updates (look it up) and I'm off to the races until my next upgrade."

    "This is a standard I7 processor. It's nothing special, but if you're on a budget, this is great for everyday use. It's the one I've been using for a few months now, and it's not the fastest, but I haven't had any problems with it when combined with an SSD."
