If you're on a budget and want to put the money elsewhere, I would recommend this processor.
After a couple years of using pretty heavily it has shown some age, however, nothing major. It sometimes will display a little lag and get slow, however, nothing to hinder performance in gaming or nothing to slow your work day down.

There are several benchmarks out there that will tell you the exact performance but all you really need to know is that an i5 form intel will perform on par with almost any i7 in about 99% of games.
There is no need to spend more money for a gaming PC.
Note: Make sure you get an intel H170, H110 or B150 motherboard for this. No need to spend extra for Z170 as the i5-6500 is not overclockable and z-motherboards have that as their main buy-fort-this feature.
As for the missing star, this is because owing to certain couriers delivering on days later than they were meant to (why is ebuyer still using yodel?), all of the parts for my current build arrived over four days when it should have been half that time. Amazon however have always been good for me, and their parcel arrived when it was meant to, along with another company who delivered my motherboard. Long story short, I had everything apart from a power supply, graphics card and OS, and was left to put this in with no idea of whether or not I'd done it correctly, and the horrible sound it makes as you clamp it down feels worse than watching someone burn £189.99, because you have to deal with the failure as well. Folks, remove the black plastic cover from the cpu cover on the motherboard, and keep your blood pressure low.
My only issue (which is why it loses a star) is that the thermal paste that comes with it doesn't seem enough for adequate cooling.
This is a great CPU, its value for money is probably the best over intel CPUs and is ideal for a sensible gaming build. Installation was easy just slot it into the CPU socket and pop some thermal paste on top with a heat sink.
No complaints whatsoever. As long as you're happy using the Skylake architecture which is still great today, even though the next architecture is out, you will love this CPU/
-comes with stock fan (good quality)
-comes with thermal paste applied (would recommend adding more paste for safe keeping)
