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.

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.
