Terrible

7 months ago.

I actually laughed out loud when I saw just how terrible this thing was for others. Not out of hilarity, but relief it's not my fault. Don't get me wrong, my other specs are "meh," but this? Suddenly, I understand why everyone said AMD was trash on all the troubleshooting forums I've been to while desperately searching for a fix for terrible...well, everything. Unfortunately, there's no other options that are compatible with my craptop, so I'm stuck with this until I can afford something that can actually run on even the lowest settings. I considered giving this two stars because it hasn't burst into flames yet, but decided against it because that's too much credit for this hot garbage. Only use this in your build if it's a gift to someone you hate, but I think it'd be cheaper to send them an actual toaster to bathe with.
