Barely could do anything in 2020-2021. Awful graphics, too. So glad I have my i5 9400f now.

10 years and is still working nice (6gb ram and ssd drive). impressive.


5 days ago.

The CPU is good for web browsing online and can run very basic 3D games if you had a small GPU like a GT 710

Whit 8gb ram and ssd drive works fine

This would have been passable a decade ago. Just awful.
