A solid entry to the Intel quad-core market, though the newer i5-4460 is a better choice for a non-overclocking build. Even so, this still can play any game out there without any trouble at all, and looks to continue to do so for several years, since it maxes out at 50-75% utilization in even very intense games.

I'm sure I'd never notice a performance difference going with a faster i5 or a Xeon, but it still gnaws at me knowing this is the bottom of the Haswell i5 stack. Works just fine though, no complaints.

PROS: It works. CONS: Not as good as a 4690k for a similar price.

Although this CPU has not the best price to performance, its incredibly capable of AAA gaming, even at 120FPS. I have mine running on forced turbo at 3.2 ghz, but I once reached above 3.4 with BCLK.
