Pros: I am building a gaming pc. I plan to purchase the Intel i-7 3770k ivy bridge for my build. but at the time i didnt have the money so i wanted to buy a cheap CPU until i could get the i7. i also heard that the mohterboard i purchased had problems with ivy brigde until you updated the drivers.
Cons: none really i would buy the ivy bridge version if you dont need it for a specific purpose like me. ivy bridges are faster and better.
