    "This is a great value for a gaming processor and a good alternative to the i7s. Beware, though, as you'll need to provide cooling. Easily overclocked, if that's your thing. "

    "Technically it's old technology but you could never tell by its performance. This thing is a monster when it comes to most tasks. Only really have two comlaints if u call it that. Like all things intel price, definitely dents the pocket book a little. The second would be the stock cooler is kinda weak. Under full load the stock cooler can't keep up. I definitely recommend an upgraded cooler to be used with this chip. With no over clock this was getting a little warmer than I would of liked to see. I would rather them drop a few bucks and ditch the cooler supplied or add a few bucks and give us something better. "

    "I thought this was a bit pricey for a "budget" graphics card, but so far it works well and gets the job done. I bough this for a friend to include in building a system for my niece and nephew to enjoy. So far, I see the difference in terms of performance and speed, but my favorite part so far is that it is ultra quiet! You won't even believe it until you experience firsthand. All in all, good value and performance. "
