    "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."

    "This particular Intel chip might be a bit older, relatively speaking, but it does appear to be suitable for all but the most cutting edge games. It is apparently fairly easy to overclock, which is good, as this can be a tricky process for the beginner. You might be taking a small risk buying this from a third-party seller, which appears to be the only option, due to its age, but if you feel confident enough to be able to buy and set this item up, you will probably be pleased with the performance you receive for the money."
