I previously had the Athlon II X2 260, which ran great and was easy to overclock. So I figured for my next build I'd opt for the 270. I wanted the Phenom II 965, but I was on a strict budget. Anywho, This CPU works great. I'm a gamer and I can honestly say, I have not had any issues running the latest games. I play Battlefield 3 (Ultra Settings), Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, Test Drive Unlimited 2 all at high to ultra settings.

As far as raw performance, I can encode a 90 min divx movie to DVD format using nero (cpu intensive) in roughly 15 to 20 mins. To give an example, older Athlon X2's (939, AM2) take around an hour. I also tend to encode a LOT of mp3s to keep everything uniform at the same bit rate. It chews through them like nothing. Encoded around 300 mp3s using dbPowerAmp in 25 mins. That's impressive.

The cooler it comes with is questionable. It's very small. A lot smaller than I expected. It does the job, but I would recommend investing in a aftermarket cooler such as the Cooler Master Hyper 212. Especially if you plan to overclock. If you're looking for a CPU that has hidden cores to unlock, this is not one of them.

It's a great budget CPU. If you're looking for something high end, I would look toward the FX or Phenom II series. But If you're on a tight budget and need something that will not only get the job done, but will have great results...this is the CPU for you.

I ordered this as an upgrade from my old PC. Got it earlier than I was told. Packaging was fine. Part works great. Wanted a quad core, but can't afford one right now. So this little beauty was my next on the list. Very fast for regular computing, pretty good for gaming. All in all, a solid upgrade from what I had in my old system that crashed after 5 years. If you need power for browsing, and computing, this will work great for you. If you plan on doing a lot of serious gaming, it can handle a little. Go for a quad if you're a gaming freak.

It's a great processor for it's price. Dual Core 3.4Ghz is a very respectable speed and is capable of running your system smoothly and quickly. Just don't expect too much from it. It'll run just about anything you want it to, and even run multiple applications at once, Perfect for a low end gaming system, or to run all the crap applications you don't want to bog down your gaming rig with. Runs great on Windows 7 and 8. Also runs great on Linux Mint and other less graphically intensive distros. Ubuntu is when it starts to lose power. In short, although the price for this CPU is low and its a few years old it'll get the job done and take on anything else you've got to throw at it.

Pros:
Great price
3.4ghz Dual core.
Reliable and smooth processing
Low power, cool and quiet
Great for HTPC's and low - medium gaming rigs.
Works flawlessly with Windows 7 and 8

Cons:
Not great for High end gaming (But can handle a little.)
A little choppy on certain distros of linux.

I love it, exactly wht I needed. I run a recording program exclusively on this box, built the computer for this reason only. This cpu runs smooth, no audio dropouts and plenty of power left after heavy processing.

Installed this on a Asus motherboard and the results were excellent. Easy to install and everything started right up and works great.
The pre-installed heatsink compound on the fan was a great benefit also.

This was delivered very rapidly and works great! I would recommend this item to anyone that is interested in purchasing one. I am running Windows 8 with it now and it seems to be everything it claims to be.

Easy installation with heat sync glue pre-installed and worked well with my motherboard because I did my research on sockets so no one should have problems with this.

Over a year of flawless performance! I have a much larger cooling unit than was provided and have been running overclocked @3.8 Ghz without any problems.
