Bang for the buck!

Looking for budget gaming cpu? This is it!
Performs on par with the i5 2500k, dual core hyperthreaded 3.5ghz for $60. Its a deal!
Great kabylake placeholder chip that can be swapped out later for an i7 7700k.
Handles my gtx 1060 6gb great.

Best budget CPU

Excellent speed for low price, wonderful for someone who wants to build a budget machine now with plenty of room for upgrade later.

Move over AMD

AMD might have lost the budget crown with this one, leaving them somewhere in the middle of budget and mid range. Plays all my games @ 60FPS with a RX470. 2 cores with hyperthreading unlike pentiums in the past without HT. System is extremely snappy serving as a file server, gaming machine, minecraft & plex server as well. No issues whatsoever. You might experience some fps dips playing AAA titles but overall most games don't even max out the 4 threads.Read full review...

Sweet little chip

This is a good little chip for the money. I'll take it all day over an i3. It performs well and can run fast RAM if your motherboard is capable. I got it as a placeholder until I can afford an i5 or i7. I'm actually glad I got it because as soon as I upgrade to the i5 (or i7), I am going to use this in a miserly HTPC.Read full review...

The best CPU for a budget gaming/streaming, period.

2 real cores 4 threads and you're ready to play 90% of the games. I paired it with DDR4 3200 RAM to stream and play at the same time* (mostly LOL or HOTS) and it does it perfectly fine (one little hiccup here and there but while gaming it's awesome.**

*Software used: OBS and latest Windows10 Insider preview (fastest branch)
**The GPU used was a GTX-1070 & I'm using the iGPU to do the video rendering.

Low power, low cost, high impact

Using an H110 motherboard after a BIOS update. The chip can run games great and stays cool, all in a system consuming less than 120 W .. WITH a dedicated gaming graphics card and the screen powered off of the system.Read full review...

GREAT CPU for the price

Very good hyperthreaded pentium. Performs very well for the price / energy usage. Definitely recommend picking this up even if you're looking to use it for gaming - it can handle that pretty well.

Fantastic

This CPU deserves its description as the best budget cpu (2017). This thing performs on par with my eight core FX-9370. Times are changing I guess. This is odd coming from an high school student.
<br>If your on a budget. This is a fantastic deal of a cpu.Read full review...

mad max game 1366x768 resolution and should handle shadow of mordor, if it can do that then
it can handle most games with a few exception's. 8gigs of ddr4 used on motherboard.Read full review...
