Currently have a 6600k but my teen son is really wanting a desktop to game on. Couple years ago I would have bought a 90 dollar Celeron and cheap motherboard and been good. What's the best bang for buck gaming cpu/motherboard right now that wont break the bank? I already have the ram. If there's something that will blow my overclocked (4.5 ghz) 6600k away that isn't too bad, I'll give him my rig and build something new for me. Cheap is king right now but needs to run games reasonably well. Already have a decent ATI video card, so just motherboard/processor please.
