A Core i5-3570K should be in your price range. allanitomwesh a b à CPUs August 13, 2012 12:44:00 PM i5 3750K. If not overclocking then i5 3450. There's reasons to get i7 or Xeon but gaming isn't one of them. No game uses that many cores,not in the distant future. Unless you are running professional suites,you don't need them.
