Possibly the best AM3+ socketed processor on the market.
July 18, 2017
I recently upgraded to this processor from my old AMD FX-6300. This processor alongside my 16gb of ram and Radeon RX480 graphics card I have been able to run any modern game in 1080p on High - Very High with at least 60 fps, alternately in 1080p on Ultra with anywhere from 30-50 fps. I could only get 60 fps on Medium in most games, and I couldn't even run Ultra on most games let alone getting the 30-50 fps that I do now. So yes this processor is well worth the price. Definitely one of if not the best AM3-AM3+ socketed processor out there. The only issue I had is it was rather difficult to manage to get the stock heatsink that comes with it to fit into place, to latch it on I had to get one side latched into place and then carefully unscrew the other anchor from the motherboard to latch the other side into place and then screw the anchor back into the motherboard - If you have to do that be very careful and ensure that you properly reattach the anchor to the motherboard otherwise it may lead to complications. If you want better processors in the AMD line and have a decent amount of money on hand I would recommend getting one of AMD's new AMD Ryzen AM4 socketed processors - that will however require a new motherboard that supports AM4 socketed processors.
