This is a LGA1156 CPU that offers good value when it comes to building a budget pc. Considering how low the price of this CPU is, I think this is a real good CPU.(if u are looking for lga 1156 cpus and u are on a budget, then buying first gen cpu isn't a good choice due to the high price, X3430,X3450 and X3470 is the best choice)
