This is a very nice budget processor. If you can get this for $90 or less. If not go for the fx 6300, it has 2 extra cores and is usually around $110. I have the fx6300 and it is a great processor for my gaming rig. I bought the fx4300 for my htpc build. I had an extra AM3+ mother board and wanted to us it.

This is actually a very nice processor with very good performance. No it cannot compete with intel i5 or i7 but it is not meant to do so. It does however offer an alternative to i3s and pentiums that are around the same price. If you look at some official performance reviews it is about on par with an I3 3220. It may not have as high of IPC (instructions per clock) but it is not far behind, however it is a little better at multi tasking as it has 4 cores instead of two with hyper threading.

The downside is it uses more power than its intel alternatives and runs a little hotter. But it is typically cheaper than the Intel it competes with.

As far as gaming, i had an old HD7770 that i thew in (soon to be a GTX 750ti) and it handles modern titles pretty well. For fun i threw my R9270 in just to see how it compares to my fx6300 overclocked to 4.2 ghz. The 4300 did very well. It handles battlefield 4 nicely and was only about 5-10 fps slower. It that was pretty typical of all the games have. For older games there was almost no difference between the two processors.

In all this is a good budget processor but it needs to be priced right for that to be true. If it stays at $90 or lower it is a good deal. Any higher and the fx6300 or the intel i3s are a better alternative.

Fast Quick, not bad for a outdated processor, I’d recommend it for light to mid gaming. I have to say that it handles everything I throw at it, and if you want to budget build, fx still has bark and bite. It’s no intel, but I also like to pay my bills and to feed myseld.

Paired with an ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 motherboard and added a GIGABYTE Radeon R7 260X.
For a low budget gaming PC this little thing is a Beast. All my son’s friend’s still like the game’s on this PC versus their XBOX, if that’s any indication. This setup has not let me down what so ever. I pushed GTA5 to 1080 and runs great.

Using this on a simple build with 8gb ram and 1TB hdd and it works great. I have a GT 740 1GB running on it and it can play games like Overwatch and Rocket league just fine. But I would still recommend to spend the extra $20 and get the 6 core one.

Great for low end builds. Not as fast as an i7 but at 30% of the price it is a great deal. Couple this with an Asus main board and you have an awesome computer for seniors or youngsters. It will not edit video fast or play the latest games but it gets the job done. It is reliable, proven and rock steady. Would highly recommend.
