This is a really good CPU. I have built two PC's with this processor and
they are trouble free and very fast. The built in graphics processor is impressive.

I am not a gamer, but playing HD movies on multiple screens is possible with this unit.

For any budget builder you can put together a low cost system for about $350 with this
chip. Make sure you have 8GB of memory or more to optimize performance. You will get
about a 15-20% improvement over 4GB or main memory.

You won't be able to build a comparable Intel unit unless you are willing to spend $500
or more. Which is why I still use AMD CPU's. For budget builds they are the best.
Many of my systems are still running 5 years later & longer.

If you mainly use your machine for surfing, viewing movies, photo's, & documents
then this is a really impressive machine. It handles multi-tasking really well.
You can have Anti-virus software scanning, and de-frag the HD and still surf without
any lag.

Bought the Quad Core Richland AMD A8-6500 CPU as a substitute for a A6-5400 dual core primarily because I do some photo editing and make the occasional DVD using photos and movies. The dual core A6-5400 is a bit slow at times for this task.
At first I was hesitant to substitute a new CPU in my HP Pavilion P6-2327c since I was painfully aware that WIN7 and WIN8 will not allow significant hardware changes without asking for a new product key. But some research on the Internet seemed to indicate that a CPU swap would not trigger the request for a new product key.
CPU arrived on time and installation was a breeze. While the CPU did come with its own fan I did not need the new fan because the fan from the older CPU was actually superior in appearance and feel. I added a small amount of thermal grease to the top of the new CPU inserted it bolted everything back down and was finished within 20 minutes tops. Turned on the machine and WIN8 booted without a hitch. Haven't tried any serious photo editing yet or DVD movie creation. Obviously the machine is zippier but haven't run any tests to see the difference in speed. Highly recommend the substitution which costs just over $100.

I bought this to run a new HTPC. I was new to HTPC and set up a Plex server. Initially this guy ran great when I was watching movies internally. Then I started sharing my library with family and it would stutter while trying to transcode to a remote site and play 1080p locally. The server is running a plethora of services as well as the theater oriented stuff so to be fair I wasn't surprised. Transcoding can be pretty hard on a cpu.

I also ran Civilization IV and some other minor games, but didn't heavily test the gpu side of things. It ran the game I tried perfectly.

I would recommend this over the 'K' variants for an HTPC since it's a 65w chip instead of the 100w that you get with the overclockable variety. You're not likely to take advantage of the OC in an HTPC and you'll save on your e-bill.

I ended up upgrading to the 6700 and it's been running without a hitch even when transcoding. So if you're building a light-use HTPC this is the answer. If you need a little more capability go with the 6700.

This APU runs very very hot. Buy an after market cooler if you know whats good for you. I have the Noctua M-ITX silent cpu fan. Works well in my tiny PC. Be aware that your BIOS could report the wrong temps. There is issues with the temps being incorrect on these APUs. Runs at about 38 idle and 60 load.

Great choice for a general/htpc. Primarily used for web browsing, office, and media playback, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this handle some newer pc games as well. Your money will go a long way with this purchase.

Great so far.. Installed on a MSI motherboard with 8 GB of memory it has run flawlessly. I will add to this after 3+ months of running FSX and my normal daily 4 + hours of games , online,etc.

Very fast processor. I am using it in a HTPC I built to stream through out my home. This runs excellent at transcoding movies and TV shows to 2 TV's and can still surf the web with no lag. Don't get me wrong the CPU is running close to 100% while doing this but you would never know by how snappy this thing is. I highly recommend this CPU. Best bang for your buck when it comes to performance

This is a very fast processor. I built a computer for my son to play many different games on. He plays minecraft with many mods loaded and it doesn't glitch. Very happy. I want one too.
