    Best Desktop processor for gaming for under $150?

    I'm going to upgrade my motherboard, RAM, processor, and possibly video card.
    What would you guys say is the best bang for your buck processor for under $150? I was looking at this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103962
    The AMD FX-6100, 3.3GHz 6-core processor. Seemed to be pretty good for only $130. I don't plan on overclocking, though. Would that still be a good choice if I'm not going to overclock it? I just want the best performance for the price.

    tl;dr best processor for $150 without overclocking

    Would opt for the extra 30-40 bucks and pick up an i5 2500k.


    Otherwise go for this.

    Any mentioned cpu will work...with the i5 2500k the most optimal. However, for gaming, the cpu is not the important thing. Throw money at a quality graphic card and possibly more ram (6-8) gig optimal.

    The graphics card is 80% of a gaming rig




    And yes...a cpu can b changed by hand assuming you are marching the correct socket on the cpu and motherboard.

    Otherwise, I wouldn't get the 6 core you were looking at. For gaming, you would be better off with this- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819106009

    My current CPU is an old AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core, with an old as fuark motherboard too, 2GB of RAM running windows XP

    Would it be worth it to spend $300 or so to get a new motherboard, CPU, and 8GB of RAM? Also switching to Windows 7

    Sounds like you have the same HP computer I have. I bought it for $900 around 6 years ago.

    Is the i5 really that much better? And doesn't the 'k' mean it's ready to overclock? I don't want to get into aftermarket cooling and everything to overclock, I just want to buy a CPU with stock cooling and be able to run it.

    Yes upgrade motherboard with cpu make sure it has same socket. Get6 or 8 gigs of ram...either or. Then spend on quality video card for gaming. Again...its this easy. IF its a GAMING computer, video card is ur priority.

    Also...for a GAMING computer do not get more than a quad core...won't make a difference. Games do not operate on more than4 cores. Anything more than 4 is for advanced graphic design and audio video editor. While you may see amd 6 core...they e useless for u. These 6 codes work independent while an Intel i5 will collective use all 4. Sandy bridge line from Intel really is the absolute best by a long shot and priced well since the ivory bridge line will surpass it. Again, this is useless since ur priority is a video.card

    Use that to help you build your computer. For your budget get i3-2100 but try and save up more money to get i5.

    Yes this is overclock
    ..however most motherboards will have over clock setting auto and u won't have to other. The fan that comes with it is perfect...unless u manual oc to like 4. Just get this cpu if u can afford with a quality video card. If u have to sacrifice one of the two...go cheap on cpu

    Unless you're on 64-bit windows, you don't need (and can't use) more than 3GB of RAM.

    im on 64 bit windows 7 with 6gb of ram... and use every bit of it according to my system monitoring graphics. only reason I have 6gb not 8 is because store didnt have any more ram sticks and I was lazy to order.

    Use that to help you build your computer. For your budget get i3-2100 but try and save up more money to get i5.
    Is an i5 noticeably better for gaming than an i3?

    Also, if i buy a 2500k over a 2500, the 2500k will be automaticly overclocked on most motherboards?

    bump

    decided I might look at this CPU now according to that chart:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scrollFullInfo

    The AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE

    Cheaper so that's more money I can spend on a graphics card. Looking at either a Radeon 6870 for $150 or NVIDIA 560 TI for $200
    Thoughts?

    That chart is silly. Here is a chart- http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ck,3106-5.html

    If you want a cheap fast AMD for < $150 get a FX-4170. If you are willing to pay ~$200, get an i5-2500k.
