One of the best budget CPUs out there for those wanting to save on a budget. Does not offer hyperthreading or overclocking, but can handle relatively high tasks. Don't be expecting to run triple A game on max settings of course, but it's good for what it is. Runs surprisingly cool on the intel stock cooler as well.
