    Not really looking to overlock anything just need a decent CPU for gaming. I thought that looks pretty good for what I needed as I have a 7970 and the I3 is starting to show its age.

    Well for that price it is a good purchase. And going from i3 to i5 you'll definitely see a boost in gaming. I know that for most people, 3dmark test scores jump up a couple thousand.

    EDIT: Talking about just overall score here, not GPU or anything.

    Then I am going to jump on it so I can get it tomorrow. :lol:

    Edit just realized it is a 1150 socket and my mobo is 1155 so it won't fit I believe?
