  1. Core i5 3570K. For those who know me and have me do their builds, you’ll know that it’s just about the best processor you can get for the money today. With plenty of performance, top notch overclocking capability and enough horsepower to run any game you throw at it, the choice is a no brainer.

    Those thinking about purchasing a processor,runs hotter,less power-efficient would be o.k. with fx-8320.
  2. Another vote for the 3570k. Great for both gaming and overclocking!
  3. Here is a chart that shows what CPUs are best for gaming. The best Intel's are left, the best AMD's are right.

    For gaming, there isn't an AMD CPU high enough to even be in the same category as the 3570k.
