After our list called “Top 10 used Graphics Cards under 100$” we also decided to make a list for best budget CPU’s under 100$. Definitely, CPU is most important thing in our PC.
WHY? – Because CPU is brain of your computer, it manages all operations in your system and it gives the soul over the rest components (let’s remember, first CPU was made at 1971 called “Intel 4004”).
Having a great and expensive GPU is not enough for smooth gameplay, it is also important to have decent CPU. That encouraged us to create a list called “TOP 10 USED CPU’s UNDER 100$”. When we talk about used things it is important to emphasize the price.

10NUMBER 10 – AMD FX-6100 ~28$

AMD FX-6100 is a high-performance microprocessor, aimed at desktop market. When it was introduced, the CPU offered good balance of price and features: it was priced at $165, which was competing with Phenom II X6 1055T.

9NUMBER 9 – Intel i5-2500K ~30$

The 2nd generation Intel Core i5-2500K processor delivers even better automatic performance increase with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. It is overclocking-enabled for the flexibility to set your systems specs the way you like. I had a personal experience with i5-2500k and it never let me down.

8NUMBER 8 – AMD FX-6300 ~35$

The FX 6-Core, like most CPUs from AMD, delivers reasonably good server orientated multi threaded performance and consequently good processing thoughput at a reasonable price tag. The AMD FX-6300 is CPU with 3.5 GHz base clock speed and it can go as far as 4.82 GHz with appropriate cooling. Many people are still using this processor and they are satisfied with it.

7NUMBER 7 – AMD FX-8350 ~ 40$

AMD FX-8350 processor is a mid-level 8-core 125W processor from AMD. Designed to offer a both ‘tall and wide’ performance, great for gameplay but even better for video editing. The turbo boost offers more performance for applications using older APIs, smartly using the TDP limit of the processor to increase throughput via increasing clock speed.

3NUMBER 3 – Intel i7-3930K ~89$

This CPU has six cores and twelve threads, it means that it lines up with the 3960X alongside the Quad Channel-1600MHz DDR3 RAM support and 130W TDP. There is one big difference between the 3960X and the 3930K: the price. Core i7-3930K is great CPU for gaming and video editing! With a decent GPU it can run any title in 2019!

2NUMBER 2 – Intel i7-4770K ~97$

The Intel Core i7-4770K has 4 cores with 8 concurrent threads when using Hyper-Threading. I7-4770K operates at 3.50GHz with a Turbo Boost frequency of 3.90GHz, while the non-K version features the same Turbo Boost frequency with a base clock of 3.40GHz. They are designed to work with DDR3-1333/1600 memory.
