Little beast

by James Headfield on 12/23/2011

Great CPU for budget machines. It's a little dated now that there are Sandy Bridge Celerons and Pentiums, but if you have an AMD machine capable of upgrading to this CPU, it's a great option. I had an Athlon II x2 250 overclocked to 3.4GHz on stock voltages, and it was a perfect HTPC or general purpose CPU. For gaming, it was average. Most users would be perfectly happy with this CPU for gaming, but enthusiasts would definitely need at least a recent quad core. I eventually upgraded to an i5-2500k for my gaming rig, and threw this CPU into my HTPC/file server, set it at 1.5GHz, and undervolted it as far as I could. It's been on 24/7 for the past year with no problems. Read More
