Bought a $70 Fujitsu desktop with this and slapped a gt 1030 and a ssd in there for my girlfriend’s little brother. Works perfectly for 1080p gaming, highly recommend for the budget gamer!

It basically still is a great CPU that can still handle quite a few modern titles. I used it with my GTX970 for games like ETS2, Dirt 2.0, WRC7, Train Sim 2020. It struggles at titles like X Plane or badly optimized ones like OMSI 2. For general work uses thow, it still is a good choice. I got my hands on mine in a 30€ (33$) TERRA PC. After I paired it with a decent SSD and my GTX970 I got a very useable "Gaming"-PC for 130$. At least, if you don´t mind buying used.
