Been using this for more than 5 years now for photo editing and gaming and rarely had reason to complain. Compared to what Coffee Lake does, this CPU aged very well.

I bought this CPU very cheap for around 30.- and paired it with a GTX 780. It is great in most games, only very CPU intensiv games struggel a bit, but other than that a great CPU for the money.
