Jason, Croydon SelfBuild Gamer Researches Components

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
My first Intel chip and the performance has impressed me greatly.
Easy to install and I had no issues.
Now I can play the latest demanding games.
I chose Sandy Bridge because it has a larger surface area than Ivy Bridge, so it dissipates heat much better. Very important if I choose to overclock it later.
Bad points:
About 50% more expensive than the AMD chip I would have bought, but I think the added cost is justified in this generation of processors.
