  1. Extend your budget around 40$ more and there you have it, Intel i5 3570k, The King of Gaming CPUs.
    Pair it up with a good Z77 Mobo (preferably ASUS) and at least HD 7770 GPU. And, let the game begin.
  2. What is the socket ? it is really hard without knowing the mobo...and other parts.
  3. just the processor? don't need a motherboard, RAM, SSD/HD, video card or anything else?
  4. I am just looking for a decent processor really as i can buy the mobo around that as i have built systems but not high end gaming ones :)
