Rated 5 out of 5 by RedRum When you have more sense than money !!
Ok in an ideal world where money is no object then the latest and greatest of CPU + Mobo with a ATI R9 / Nvidia GTX 750 0r 790 is the dream combo when chasing F.P.S in latest games then an Intel i5 or i7 will be your first choice. But when it comes to the real world and the ordinary gamer looking to get a good gaming experience then look No further than this little diamond as a excellent choice to match with a basic FM2 or FM2+ motherboard which you can get a M-ATX for around £30 and you have the makings of a good rig.
Look I have the ideal game rig a i5 sandybridge on an top end gamer mobo with 8gb of fast memory and a GTX750 3gb GPU running on a SD Hard drive in a great big super stylish Full tower Case and its incredible !! so what has this to do with the AMD Athlon 11 X4 750K ?? and you would be right to ask, but I bought one to be used in a little media centre I was putting together I matched it with a MSI A55m-E33 m-atx mobo stuck it in a micro ATX incl PSU case (£30) stuffing in 4gb of DDr3 ram I had hanging about about as was the 500Gb HD which with Vista 64bit OS really did surprise me and very pleasantly I may add. So much so I bought a AMD ATI R260X 2Gb GPU and dropped it in just out of curiosity!! , The result was amazing it smashes its way through all of the latest games I tested it with, such as and including ( Crysis , Metro2033 ,COD series Deus EX, Arma2CO Arma3 and many more ) and all at very playable F.P.S. When counting the cost ? that's a Complete Base Unit plus a 19" LCD monitor and all for LESS than I paid for my GTX750 GPU ?
To me it was an eye opener and proved just what is possible by shopping around and tailoring your Build to suit your budget and it need not cost a fortune.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Viktor -Cheap
-Performance close to that of Intel Core i3 which is enough for casual stuff and moderate gaming
-Very good value for money
-Even with unlocked multiplier don't expect it to perform in the same league as Intel quad cores
-Absence of L3 cache
