Processor is a need to buy if you are looking to upgrade to a newer system, windows 11 is needed to harness its full potential but there are many ways to deal with that

Insanely fast processor

I got this for both gaming and work. It's been exceptional so far. Lightning fast processing and boot times. Up next I'll be running it through some video editing I need to get done. No regrets on getting this 12th gen.

Works as intended

It is definitely worth the expense, compared to similar processors on the market it is quite nice, and was easy to set up (as most CPUs tend to be) Works as intended and shipping was fast, packaging wasn't damaged or messed up at all either.
