This CPU is literal garbage compared to most CPU's now a days. It is still good, but running youtube on google chrome makes this thing go to 40%. If you are fine with that, and want to only run one thing at a time, sure. It's fine for VR, fine for most modern games, but if you're looking for a REAL cpu, this isn't it.
