    "If you are looking for a processor for gaming, this is the right one. I have been using this since it came out and have had no issues. It has been able to easily handle every game I have played. The response rate has been amazing. Not only is perfect for gaming, but I have been able to use it for everything else and it operates at such a high level that I never experience any slow down. I would definitely say it's worth investment. "
