Save $122: It's widely been considered the standard for high-end PC gaming - and computing in general - because of its consistently quick performance and cost-to-power ratio. For the money, you're getting an 8-core (16 threads) overclockable processor that, when fully unlocked, can run at speeds of up to 5.1GHz. In summary, it has all the gaming grunt you could want, and enough left over to juice in the tank to tackle whatever you throw at it - just remember to pair it with a good graphics card!
