So I bought this processor 3 weeks ago and I can honestly say I am loving it. It's a dual core processor clocked at 3.0GHz AND its on Sandy Bridge architecture! Although it lacks the hyperthreading that its i3 cousins have, it still performs very nicely. It runs at about 25C using the stock cooler and will go up to 36C at full load still running silent however. The integrated GPU is not an Intel Graphics 2000/3000 however, it is just called Intel Graphics Family. Do not underestimate this however. This integrated GPU can easily max out Call of Duty 4 with no AA and run at 30-40 FPS and it plays Minecraft on full settings with a 128x128 texture pack at 45 FPS. If you are in the market for a budget processor that runs cool and don't want to pony up another $30 for the i3, definitely pick this processor up for even one of its little brothers, the G850 or G840.

A very good CPU for under $70. Really is like an i3 without hyperthreading and without the better HD2000 integrated graphics. I prefer to use an upgradeable video card. I spent a little bit more, but I do not share system memory for video and I get just a bit better video performance. (Using a Radeon 6670 - 6.8 WEI for both graphics scores).

I was building a budget gaming rig and decided to go with a CPU/discrete graphics card rather than using integrated graphics. This processor is priced right to get the job done and my machine is nothing but snappy!

I'm very pleased, even with the stock cooler, at how cool the chip stays. I imagine this cooler would fit in even the tightest of HTPC cases, it isn't even taller than my RAM which has heat spreaders. It is also quiet. In fact, the only fan I hear most of the time in this system is the GPU can.

The only drawbacks I can think of are that it is only a dual core chip and it is not overclockable.

I paired this chip with a Biostar H77MU3 motherboard and stuck an EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti in there for gaming. I am averaging about 50-60fps while playing Assassin's Creed III on the highest settings. (Not at 1080p, though, as I don't have a screen capable of that.)

Paired this Intel Pentium G860 processor with an ECS H61H2-M2, 8gb Crucial Ballistix, 80gb Intel SSD, and Windows 7 Home for a great ultra-budget build PC. Plenty fast for all Office products and web browsing. Very happy with this processor.

The G860 has exceeded expectation in every way. This was installed in a new build home office PC and can handle anything we throw at it in a respectable time. Nice easy path for upgrade to an i5 later as well.

Purchased to put in my HTPC. I have no problems streaming HD Video via Netflix or through my TV Tuner Card, I have also played CD, DVD, and FM Radio with no hiccups. Stock CPU fan runs very quiet and hasn't gone over 34 C. This CPU scores around 2900 using passmark benchmark testing which is the reason i picked it over several others.

I recently built my first gaming PC and the most difficult part of the process wasn't the actual building part but choosing the right and best parts! I wanted to keep the total build around $500 (including OS!) so many of my decisions were based on price. Of course, performance had to be good enough for a gaming PC too. Enter the Intel Pentium G860 3.0 GHz Dual-Core Processor. Sure, everyone wants an Intel i7 or even an i5 or i3, but from my research I found that the hyper threading that those processors include don't really matter much when it comes to games (and from my experience so far has proven that to be very true). The G860 is built on the same architecture as the big boys but with a considerably smaller price tag. Plenty of RAM and a good graphics card paired up with this processor make for a fantastic budget gaming PC. Don't be fooled by the "Pentium" name. As I have found out through research, this processor is completely different from the low powered, budged Pentium processors of years past. It is essential an i3 without hyper threading. And it really does scream. The PC I built runs Windows 8 incredibly well with this processor. No lag. Sucker flies!

This processor came in a small Intel box and included a heat sink with fan. There was thermal past already on the fan so installation was incredibly easy. I had never built a PC before and installing the processor was probably the single easiest part of the build. My advice to anyone building a gaming PC is to get a motherboard that accommodates not only this processor but also the i7 and below, that way if you ever want to upgrade all you need to do is replace it. Easy!

A quick note on the price. I got mine for around $68 bucks but I have seen it fluctuate as low as $60 but as high as $100. So keep an eye on the price before you buy since Amazon often raises and lowers prices daily. $70, give or take a few bucks, appears to be the good, stable price for this processor.

This CPU has very nearly the same gaming performance as a Sandy Bridge i3 2120. Take a look at the comparisons between it and the i3 2120 on line. That means it outperforms in gaming the non-overclocked AMD FX 4100, the Phenom X4 955 and all the AM1 processors if you add a graphics card. Only has a WEI of 6.8 but in Gaming its performance is stellar. BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK BAR NONE!
I bought this CPU as a cheap test work horse that was Sandy Bridge so I would not have to sacrifice my Ivy Bridge CPU's. This chip goes in first to update the bios and get a first run on the machine before the more expensive chip goes in.
