A hell of a good deal especially with ram prices starting to drop.

I am due for an upgrade as I have an i5 3470 and GTX 750 ti. Should I get this or spend $10 on a 2600? Or wait for the 3000 series? I am not in a hurry as I can still play the games I play relatively fine. All I do is play games on Windows and program on Linux Mint.

Get the 2600 or microcenter (if you are lucky enough to live by one) has the 1600 for $99.99 +tax

It really depends on your plan. What games are you playing or planning on playing? Are these games that require a lot out of your cpu? What kind of monitor are you running and what is your ideal FPS. A lot of things actually come into play. People will argue and say I'm wrong but when it comes to ME....I spend big because I don't plan on upgrading again for a long time. The 2600 isn't bad but it's nothing special. I would choose 2600 over 1700. But again if it was me, I would be spending more money because I don't want to update my system every couple of years to play the latest games. The frys electronic stores near me have been running 20% off your entire purchase. That can save you a good amount of money on a better cpu.

Just be aware that (at least per the Q&A section on that page) there's no cooler included.

I litterally just got this in the mail today to set up my streaming PC. Powers on and oc super easy and the wraith cooler does a fantastic job (it's also RGB). I got 3.7 without even touching the voltage. Paired it with the b350m pro gaming for $55 on eBay as well. Cheers

it depends on what you are doing with your computer. if you have 1080p monitor then your cpu is still very capable of playing games at good setting. what you need upgraded is the GPU more than the CPU. keep your money on upgrading to a whole new rig. spend about 100-130 for a used RX 580 8gb GPU on ebay and you will rock with your games.

This, this, this. I have an i5-4570 and 8gb ddr3. I recently upgraded to a used rx 580 8gb. It plays new stuff 1080p on high settings with high frame rates and I even play Fallout 76 at 4k on low/med settings with 30-40fps.

Hello. I pretty much exclusively play Starcraft 2 and Left 4 Dead 2. I play both on the lowest possible settings at 1080p. I am not sure how much CPU these games require. All I know is that I do get lag in SC2 if there are a ton of units on screen, for example. My ideal FPS is pretty much as much as possible because I want a lag free experience, which is why I play on all low.

You can spend 100$ on an i7 3770 on eBay instead of a 2600. And look for a rx 570 or 580 or gtx 1060 on sale.
