    from completed build Living Room Gaming Hexahedron

    Even though its an older Sandy Bridge i5, it can still hold its own. I mainly use this to power my htpc/ gaming PC and so far I don't notice any extreme bottle necks.

    Quite old by now and was never the best to begin with, but should be able to just play along with a GTX 970 without causing too bad of a bottleneck...
