    "I recently built a new PC and I was trying to do it on a budget. One of the areas I decided not to skimp on was the processor. I went with the 7th Gen Intel i7. This totally covers me for a while and gives me the ability to play just about any game out there. With this processor, I never have to worry if I have enough under the hood from a processor standpoint to play the games that I want to play. "

    "I think this everything you could need and want in a processor if you are a gamer. The 4 cores should be more than enough for most gamers. I think the price point is more than fair, especially if you are like me and need to save some money. I love the Turbo Boost technology, it has made gameplay even more fun. I would highly recommend this to all gamers on a budget. "

    "A solid processor that really is designed specifically for gamers. Powerful single cores, so it can crunch anything a game needs computed. A bit expensive, but that's Intel for you. While this is a multi core chip, it does lose out to some other multi core chips in non-gaming situations. But if you don't care about that, this is the chip for you."
