Pros: V Fast, HyperThreading, Trumps AMD for gaming

Cons: Hot, not THAT cheap

I bought my i7 3770k for a mere £160 from someone who abandoned their system build - he just wanted to make a quick sale...
Coming from an AMD system, this thing runs like a bat outta hell - it's doesn't slack.
Definitely worth the price if you can dig deep enough to buy it, awesome for hybrid rendering and 3D work.

When it comes to gaming however, this thing is in a whole new world of its own. It powers through the frames like no tomorrow, and granted that you have a good enough GPU, you will notice a big increase over the competition.

Be a man, buy an i7.

Would and i7 be necessary if you just played games?
No, not at all. i5 3570k would perform exactly the same - although if you can dig deeper, this is a v nice chip.
