So, i have got an rx 580 and i need to make a pc to play games on it...my bughet is perhaps the tighest on planet earth .
I have 150$ to build rest of the pc...
I know the best way is to go used and i can find and i5 4590 for little over my bughet and an it 3570 right in my bughet..
So which should i buy and would u recommend any other used cpu over these and what about xeon cpus cuz they are pretty cheap right here

the cheap xeons are the old x58 nehalem westmere and are quite limited in the single core performance, yeah, theyd work fine with a 580, but thats as far as I'd go(mines a dell t3500 and a gtx1060, i would not go past a 1070 with it). the 3570 is a decent chip and you should be able to find a board and chip for well under 150. Perhaps you can find a prebuilt with a i7 3770 in it for right around the 150 mark.
