Intel Core i7-4790K Processor- BX80646I74790K

Runs hot

Stream12

Pros: Extremely fast

Cons: Runs hot

This is an extremely fast processor, however in my opinion, gamers stick to an i5. I previously had an i5 4690k at 3.5ghz and that was enough. I upgraded to this beast because it was part of Intel's holiday deal. After installing it the computer remained relatively the same speed for most basic tasks and for gaming. The real benefit for me is when I rendered the occasional video. However...

Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1150 Quad-Core Desktop Processor

Intel Core i5-4440 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1150 Quad-Core Desktop Processor

“Enough of the jokes. I take Tom's "Best CPU" monthly articles literally...for gaming (of which I not much of a), "if you're not going to OC, you probably don't need more than a 4440.) And when I was looking of an i5 for this new build I'm now working on, I saw an offer of this i5-4440 for only $168 at NCIX, it seemed that it would do. Review is predicated on a damned good price basically....” --dennphill

Intel Pentium G2030 / 3 GHz processor

Intel Pentium G2030 / 3 GHz processor

“I had one of these 1155 Pentium CPUs for a year, give or take a few days. With 8 GB RAM and a Gigabyte GT 730 GPU added onto an ASRock H61M-VS4 Motherboard, the G2030 was quite capable of doing small 3D renderings in TurboCAD, and it can handle older games like Xcom and the UT series, though not on hi-res. There was also no problem with movie watching, (as long as all necessary codecs are...” --Kosenator

Intel  Core i3-4370  3.8GHz  LGA 1150  Desktop Processor

Intel Core i3-4370 3.8GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor

“I recently built this into a budget gaming/work PC. I was stuck between a cheap i3, and a much more expensive i5, and this seemed to be a nice compromise. 4 cores is nice, but this will handily out run and quad core, as long as no more than 2 cores are used. At 3.8 GHz Stock, this has more than enough speed, and I have been able to push this cpu to extreme performance. It is matched with a...” --Macgyverman1123

Intel Core i7-4790K Processor- BX80646I74790K

“I have to say that overall I am extremely pleased with my i7 4790k purchase and it's performance. It is so incredibly fast, and is actually just a hair shy of a $500 i7 3930k in most tasks which says a lot. That really is a big deal for a $300 proc. The 4790k idles strangely cool, in the low 20's (C) with my Corsair H80i, and is about 8-10C cooler than an i7 4770k at idle all things being...” --hapkiman

Intel Pentium Processor G3258 4 BX80646G3258

“First off love this processor! You have to understand it is dual core with no HT (Hyper threading). Once you get past that, than you'll see this is one of the best bangs for your buck! I currently have one of these powering my spouse's gaming rig. I have overclocked it to 4.6Ghz at 1.38-1.4v. At this OC it beats out my i7 4930k in single core performance. For most games such as Arma 2+3,...” --DamselinDistres
