I prefer using a 720p monitor so that i can run most of the games.
It's tiny and packs a lotta power!
I play in 1080p and don't measure FPS, except in CS:GO, where it's around 70 FPS with high details. I adjust settings according to game requirements, so that every game I play looks smooth. I played Hitman: Absolution, Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, BF3, Sniper Elite 3… without any issues.
I am quite amazed by the power of this chip, even though I'm not using it's full potential. CPU is set at 4 Ghz, IGP at 960MHz and memory at 2133 MHz. I've tested it with CPU at 4.3 GHz, IGP at 1027 MHz and RAM at 2400 MHz, and it was still working perfectly.
I'm using Asus AI Suite for monitoring, since I couldn't install AMD Overdrive (apparently it's not working with this motherboard), but I'm not sure how accurate it is. Idle temp is around 35°C, while in load is around 55°C. But I keep all fans at around 800 rpm, to lower the noise.
Cost of PC (without peripherials and monitor) was around 450€. It might be even cheaper in USA or EU
