Best Desktop CPUs

By October 1, 2013

Follow me on:

In the past few months, both Intel and AMD have silently updated a number of their processors. Without much fanfare, the lower cost Haswell based processors came out which will help with the adoption of the new socket LGA 1150 motherboards. AMD on the other hande finally updated its FX lineup of performance processors which is often overshadowed now by their APUs. If you happen to be in the market to build a new desktop computer or possibly upgrade your existing system, check out my list of Best Desktop CPUs for a selection of processors from AMD or Intel for a variety of different budgets.
