Had an old Asus M3A78 MB, so installed this CPU with a Nvidia 745 graphics card, and a 250GB SSD to make a plex server. This thing is fast, and idle temp is 25c and rarely jumps over 35c. Rock solid with Windows 10. Oldie but goodie and cheap!

Budget higher-end I bought back in ~2010, still used in the family PC to this day.

Considering how old it is, it works well even with a GTX 1050
