    "One of my favorite processors of all time. It comes from the 4th generation of intel processors and still to this day, one of the best processors out there given its price point and performance range. I have one in my personal rig and I have no plans as of yet to replace it. You can overclock the beast even slightly and you will be rewarded with the benefits of better performance almost instantly. Its still a little pricey since Amazon doesn't like to update prices based on age of architecture, but you can find it for about a hundred bucks."

    "While this is an excellent processor, it is nothing close to a budget chip. This is one of the more expensive chips on the market and certainly one of Intels more expensive chips. I need something that fits my budget; this breaks it in half. I'll keep searching. "
