Xyos said: It depends on the game honestly. Some games like all source engine games benefit greatly from a good CPU, CIV5, etc, while others are more GPU intense. If you dont want to spend a lot go for something like this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116896***I dont think any game at the moment uses more than 4 cores, most games dont really utilize more than 2 fully. Any CPU with more that 4 cores is a waste for gaming IMO***
