Matthew, Director

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cheap, onboard graphics are very good.
Bad points:
It gets very hot, the cooler in the box is a bit of a joke so budget for a better one.

Chris,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
runs at about thirty six degrees centigrade, unlike the old Pentium 4 from 2005 which ran at fifty as soon as it was plugged in. Windows 8 works fine, so does Saints Row 2, everybody else on the internet don't know what they talkin' 'bout.
Bad points:
does not come with 20 other processors i can benchmark it against, thereby making this review less valid.
