Customer Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nice budget gaming cpu so I splashed out on a msi gtx 970 graphics card to replace my aging (gracefully) gtx 660 and I was mucho impressed (despite the negative press that card has received recently) so then I decided to replace my fx4100 which was good enough for me in its day..i didn't want to replace my mobo just yet so I opted for the fx 6300 which just plopped onto my existing mobo with no hassle and put my aftermarket cooler back on..overclocked to a very stable 4.6ghz and stress tested for 3 hours using prime95 to make sure everything was hunkey dorey..I did have to update my mobo bios as this is the latest vishera chip so bear that in mind if you purchase this cpu..everything ran great before but this cpu coupled with the gtx 970 is a great way to play 1080p or 1440p with constant 60fps and in some cases a lot higher.now some people will tell you this chip wil bottlekneck the card but its total rubbish..if its set up correctly,latest mobo bios etc then this cpu and that card will last a budget conscious gamer for a few years to come..not everybody can afford an i5 3570k and my rig is almost as good as my friends i5 3570k,gtx 780 ti setup* so don't be swayed...my specs if anybody is interested or wants to flame me is as follows..amd fx6300 overclocked @4.6ghz,msi gtx 970 and 16 gig of ddr3 1600 ram. *i did say almost as good..not quite but for the cost saving almost.. 21 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decent CPU for the price. Chose this CPU for my new build, it's pretty decent, but my only complaint is it staggers a lot when playing CPU heavy games like DayZ Standalone, float around 20-30 FPS most of the time, other than that definitely a recommended CPU. 01 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by bang for buck king this is not an i5 killer but will hold its own if over clocked you will want a good cooler like an h80i though , I see allot of people choosing the pentium anniversary as it has slightly better single core performance, but with more games needing at lest 4 cores just to boot and even more using as many cores as they can get this is you best bet if you on a budget. 27 January 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Its an AMD so I never expect much cheap and does the job I wanted, great for a media PC I tried rendering something in 3dsmax out of curiosity, it got very hot with the stock heat sink and fan, If you can get a better heat sink and fan. 22 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 6 cores, great for multitasking Old machine was core II duo. Now if something ties up a core (so few apps I have support multi-core) I can just get on with something else on the computer. I am a heavy MIPS user (vast spreadsheets, Sketchup, Cut3D, Pspice, that sort of thing). 13 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Graeat CPU About £70 cheaper than an i5 equivalent (CPU Benchmark). unless your using professional applications where time is money I would recommend this CPU. You can have things running in the background (AV, torrent client, etc) while playing games. This CPU does the job and it's only £80ish. 25 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This Processor is generally a great deal! I really like the Bang-for-buck of this Processor, it has great overall performance for an extremely generous price. A Great all-rounder! My only negative response would be that the Standard Heat-sink that comes with the processor is somewhat inadequate at keeping the processor cool in extended periods of high load (Games like Arma 3, etc. can warm things up a bit), but nothing too major! 24 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fast & sure No complaints so far, been running for about a month with varying loads. Did not use the stock cooler. 21 November 2014

Answer: 
Any motherboard with the AMD 980G, 880G, or 890GX chipset which has a ati 4000 series GPU built in the motherboard should be fine. Just double check to make sure though.

But I would highly recommend that you either get a Dedicated GPU or an AMD APU. An APU will run all programs and even some games but I'm guessing your not into that type of thing because your thinking of going with onboard MOBO graphics.

Have a look at cheaper GPU's or even APU's. Just remember APU's need different motherboards with different sockets.

Answer: 
Hello,

This CPU does not have onboard graphics as its an FX CPU, if you want onboard graphics you need to buy an APU for example AMD A10, A8, A6, A4 or an Intel Pentium with integrated graphics.

Answer: 
I assuming 'mobo' stands for Motherboard, but I have no idea what 'ob/ graphics' stands for.

Could you perhaps post another question without the abbreviations so I can look into it?

Thanks.
