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.

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.

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.

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.

I put this in a Dell Inspiron 546 that had a quad core Phenom (not a phenom II) running at 2.4 ghz and this dual core with a faster clock speed is faster for most applications, despite a lower Windows Experience rating. Gaming frame rates increased ~15%. I run 8 gb of DDR2 ram, windows 7 64 bit, and an Nvidia gtx 650ti graphics card and can run Metro 2033 in 3d at >30 fps in 720p. This will keep me satisfied for quite a while until I get around to doing an i5 or i7 build some day.

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.

If you are considering getting this product, I would. The GHz is amazing. It is faster considering my last processor was only 2.8. Also it being a dual-core, thats a major upgrade when you are use to single core processors. The pricing was great too. I used it in a compaq computer.

I bought this AMD processor to upgrade my parents sempron 140 desktop. It was easy to replace. They have a speedy pc now with more video (including skype) quality. With only a few bucks this "old" am3 socket has a long life ahead.
