Really good Budget Cpu, Strong Enough to run new games.
Solid Intel processor that has been handling workstation loads and most recently 1080P gaming. Surprisingly my GPU bottlenecks in most games before this CPU even hits 60% average core usage. Has pretty decent passmark scores for its age and does well in synthetic benchmarks. I am able to play with no CPU issues GTA V, Shadow of Mordor, CS:GO, SWTOR, etc with no CPU bottlenecks.
Found this on /r/hardwareswap for $45 shipped, works great so far. Paired with the GTX 950, I can run BF4 @ 1080P with high settings at a constant 60Hz.
