I'm using this as in my z170x build until the price of the 6700k takes a dive or the 7th generation i7 is released. At $60 it's a decent placeholder. —Aug '16

While it was surpassed by the G4560, it's still a good option.

The G4400 is a bit older already, and might not be the best CPU to choose even for a budget build, especially now in 2018, but it still does a great work when it comes to desktop use, and does a decent work when running games, I still would suggest anyone to get a better CPU, like a G4560, an I3 or Ryzen 3, because this processor is getting old pretty fast and might not be very useful in a couple of years from now.

Good budget CPU, when paired with a good graphics card, can run games like ark: survival evolved on high to max settings depending on the GPU.

Precisamente, yo tambien estoy usando este G4400 para juegos junto a una GTX1060 de 6GB en una placa Z170X hasta que salga la nueva generación. En mi caso, es posible que busque un i5 en el mercado de segunda mano. Edit: Si, es cierto. Aunque lo tengo OC a 133hz x33 (4.38Ghz), sufre algunas caidas de fps (cuello de botella). Indeed, I am also using this G4400 games along with a 6GB GTX1060 in a Z170X plate until it comes out the next generation. In my case, you may find an i5 in the second hand market. EDIT: Yes it's correct. Although I have to 133hz x33 OC suffers some falls fps (bottleneck).
