Not only does the new Excavator core design perform exceedingly well at gaming and general use tasks, it actually beats out the more expensive Piledriver chips that are running at much higher clocks in a few tests! Granted, you don't get absolute bleeding edge performance, but for under $60, the AMD Athlon X4 845 is one heck of a deal! At under $120 for a CPU and motherboard pairing, it doesn't take much imagination to realize you can put together a very capable gaming machine for not a whole lot of Benjamins.
