There is no opinion, at that price range, the 4670K is the CPU to get. I know as of a couple days ago it was even on sale for $189 at microcenter, but instore pick up only.

The only other choice at this price range would be the i7 that someone else already posted.

If your primarity gaming/internets then the i5 will be great.

If were going to do something more cpu intensive the i7 may be better, but wont really improve gaming much.

TC just know your motherboard has to match the CPU, if you're buying a CPU you're going to also buy a MoBo.
