It's not that expensive, and it's doing its job well! Sure the i5 6600k may be better. But more expensive. so if you are trying to save money but don't want a pc that can't do anything, buy this processor. (Or anything else, i just prefer this,)

bought with a gtx1070 and is not really compatible

IPC has greatly improved since the first gen. The only point where it's lacking is in it's number of core where it has only 2 cores and 4 threads.
