    So that i5 on its own for 100 is the best processor of the lot?

    I've got a decent gfx card. Just need to the rest of the PC to catch up. :)
    No. If you can get a brand new i7-2500k for 150, you could immediately Ebay it for 215. I've never seen it for less than 230 new. Typically it should outperform the 3570k when both are overclocked.

    If you're just gaming and you can get the 3350P for 100. Get that, I don't think I've ever seen it for less than 125. That's basically an Ivy-bridge quad-core for 10 more than a dual-core i3.
