Re: Gaming build for teenager
For gaming I believe a 4.2 GHz quadcore is going to be better than an i3 dual core running a GHz slower. I've also read up on this CPU and it overclocks as good or better than Sandy Bridge (5+ Ghz on closed-loop coolers, or >4.5 on stock cooler).
Without jumping up to an i5-2500K or i5-3570K, I believe this is the best gaming CPU for the money.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
