5 out of 5 eggsgood buy for budget system

Pros: upgraded kids computer with this apu and was night and day - kids use this system a lot and has performed very well for their needs. runs cool with stock fan/heatsink and apu graphics better than anticipated

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this in kids computer with 8g 1600 ram and win7 64 has been plenty for what they use it for - mostly guild wars 2, civ5, sims 3, eve online and SimCity and run very well.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing APU

Pros: Only having a CPU and using a separate graphics card, having an APU really helps me save money, and allows me to play low end games, like minecraft without a hassle.

This apu has performed for my expectations and has worked marvelously since it's installation.

Cons: None! :D

Other Thoughts: I've already recommended this to a few people.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD A8-5500 Trinity 3.2GHz (3.7GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W Quad-Core Desktop APU

Pros: 4 cores / built in GPU / great price / low power

Cons: it didn't self install to the cooler . . . . lol

Other Thoughts: I installed this into a ASUS F2A85-V PRO FM2 AMD A85X MB and upgraded to a H60 water cooler with upgraded Arctic Silver. Runs fast, quiet and cool Win 7 Pro 64. This build is replacing a home work-station I built in 2004 with a Barton CPU and XP. The users are very pleased with the price and performance and this setup should last them several years of daily use.

5 out of 5 eggsPlesent Surprise

Pros: Faster then Expected
Lower Power Consumption

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Got this to build a low powered gaming machine, was expecting to have to buy a second GPU to play what I wanted to play with this.
I got impatient, couldn't find my 7 64bit disk so installed 32bit so only using a portion of my ram. but even this, this game loaded portal 2 and defaulted to highest settings and ran flawlessly.
Built this machine as a "source box", no not a steam box as all i really want to play on this computer is source based games, and its doing it no problem without a secondary GPU. may add second GPU if i decide to play more damanding games

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT CPU

Pros: VERY good for the price. It's very speedy paired with fast memory and a fast SSD. The GPU is OUTSTANDING. This runs better than some builds I've seen with a dedicated GPU in all honesty. Can run most games on high settings at 30-45 FPS.

Cons: Get's a little hot with the stock cooler that it comes with. With the paste that comes with it, it maxes at around 104C at max load. Replaced with Arctic Silver Ceramique I got it down to 94C, which is better but is still rather hot.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy this again for future budget builds. Outstanding product.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Decent performance for the price. This is an APU, and functioned well. This was just a workstation replacement for an old system and fit the build well. (not used for any big graphic games)

Cons: None that I came across for what it's intended purpose was.

Other Thoughts: This was not for a gaming rig,

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the Price

Pros: This is a great processor for the price. Performs very well and you will not be disappointed with the processing speeds. On the other hand the graphics in this APU is ok.

Cons: I was happy after months of use. Unfortunately, a week or so ago the graphics started to break up and go out. Thought maybe it was a driver issue but looks like it the unit since AMD has not put anything out on this issue. This was from normal use no clocking or gaming.

Other Thoughts: It is a very good APU. If you are going to have a video card installed separate then you wont have anything to worry about.

5 out of 5 eggsLiking my first AMD machine

Pros: I chose this piece to do my first official Newegg review, so here we go

I was overhauling an old gaming system i acquired from a friend. At first i wanted to try an Intel build, but setting myself a budget of only $200 meant that wasn't a viable option. My initial plan was to go with a higher rated dual core, but a sale enticed me to take the plunge to a quad. I'm glad I did. I have yet to peg this thing to 100% usage and it runs several programs as well as streaming video all simultaneously without so much as a studder. I haven't done much gaming on it yet, but i can say that Simcity at average settings maxes out at around 20% usage. The built in AMD graphics and ultra-low power draw are just icing on the cake at this point

Cons: After a long time (2+ hours) on a game or heavy web browsing, my temps will start to climb to the 140-150° F range, and it makes me nervous sometimes. I am using the stock cooler for now, so chances are anyone with an aftermarket one won't have this problem.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure most of my fellow builders will know this already, but just in case. Many games and apps wont work until you install the drivers for the video. I did it the easy way and installed the AMD Catalyst software. It just scans your machine and picks the drivers for you
