Terrible

This Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 CPU was included in a second hand office PC that I bought for approx. US$80 in 2016. When used mainly as an office / entertainment PC, there isn't really such a huge performance difference, compared to a B250M, Intel Core i3-7100 PC that my sister bought in mid 2017. In fact, I would even categorize the real-life day to day performance difference (PC start-up speed or for opening software programs, etc., etc.) as small. The difference is a few seconds at most.
