Was wondering how good this CPU is for gaming? I've stuck with Intel for a long time but the price of the I5 and I7 is so much compared to AMD.
well, that will depend on the game your planing on playing.
Some game will benefit from the high speed dual core. other's benefit from having 3 or more cores. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/83?vs=120
Personally I'd stick with going with something like the Phenom II x3 if you're gaming and overclock when needed. There nice cpus on that front.
Although only issue with that is, Phenom II x3's on newegg are OEM at the moment. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103652
