This thing is a beast despite its age, replaced from my old Core 2 Quad, plays all games at 60 fps with the GTX 950, no bottleneck at all, in fact, it can even handle a GTX 980, which is crazy for a processor that has its years. I am very happy with this one, moreover now that I see that it compares to an i3 6100. I got it just to play Titanfall 2, but does so much more!
