    "If you are looking to upgrade to an Intel but don't have the budget for an i7. This is exactly what you need. A ton of power at a decent price."

    "I'm not a huge fan of this cpu. If all I want to do is game, then yeah it's great. But I only game sometimes. The rest of the time, I'm running application windows, I've got seventeen browser tabs open, I'm streaming music, I'm running VLC, and a bunch of other stuff. I need a cpu that handles multithreading. And one that's not going to break the bank even as it tops out on cycles."

    "This is a very good choice of processor for this search criteria. This is a popular and very powerful processor within this price range, and still a fairly current model. This would be a great pick, and I'd be happy to buy this product for my budget gaming PC."

    "This is by far the best processor I have ever installed. The overclocking capabilities make it the hands down the best processor. That being said, yes it is hard to justify the cost, but it's worth every penny."
