Summary: Best processor for the money. If your computer is using a discreet graphics card then you don't need to spend extra money on a Core i7 processor. GET THIS PROCESSOR -- assuming, of course, you have the right motherboard!
Summary: This CPU is blazing fast. I bought it for my new build after doing a healthy amount of research into it and chose it over the comparable Core i7 3770. It has all the specs of the i7 - the same cache, execution speed and core count, plus hyperthreading - and only lacks the integrated GPU.
