It depends on what your needs are if you don't have an FM2 motherboard I would go with either the FX 4300 or 6300 the problem with the 750k is it has no L3 Cache or no Turbo core which makes the CPU bad if you plan on doing any kind of video editing of your games, but if you don't plan to do any of that and just want to play PC games on medium or high settings I think it will do just fine.

It's ok for the price but depending on what you want to do you may be better off with a Pentium. You can get a Haswell pentium for $60 or so that will have superior single threaded performance if you play games like minecraft. The Pentium will also have integrated graphics where the Athlon doesn't.

Actually, it does have turbo core, and Socket FM2 doesn't work eith 4300 or 6300... FM2 is the low-end APU board.
750k is all 'round worse than 955, and costs as much as 6300. It's just a stupid buy.

I suggest anyone that is talking down the x4 750K look at some benchmarks. The 760K is the most recent revision, based on Richland, also.

I did. It's all around worse than 955, costs as much as 6300, and gets you stuck with the FM2 socket.
If you're already on Socket FM2 and are looking to replace an old APU with a CPU+GPU combo, it's a decent idea, but it's not a good value, and not a good processor.

It's a budget CPU. Not really bad by any stretch of the imagination, but don't expect to get 60 fps on every game. Heck, if watch dogs is as demanding as the reqs suggest, you're gonna be near the minimum.

It's basically a little weaker than my phenom II.

That's why he said if you don't have an FM2 mobo you should go with a 4300/6300.And the 750k is $30-50 cheaper than a 6300 depending on whatever deals are going on that day. The 750k is $80, and the cheapest I have seen a 6300 for is $110.

It's not bad performance for only $80 at all, don't know why you're so against it.
