CPU with ASUS B-85 pro gamer

Hi everyone,

Recently my CPU gave in (RIP). So now I'm looking for a new CPU.
Motherboard is an ASUS B-85 pro gamer. (I know it's pretty old, but it keeps on going and get's the job done. Right now I'm not yet looking for that much of an upgrade.)

I don't game that often, but most games I play are Total War: Warhammer 2, Vermintide 2, Doom (I don't mind low settings). Any suggestions? My budget is set between 150 and 250 euros.

Most of the I7 that will work on that are terribly overpriced because very few find themsleves needing an upgrade from them yet.

I would try checking out some of the LGA 1150v3 Xeons on the used market, with many enterprise and business systems hitting the recyclers you can snag a deal from time to time.

Most i5 4th gens will get the job done, but not sure of the gaming potential of those xeons

Those Xeon E3 v3 are the same for gaming as their respective Core counterparts with similar speeds because they are 4th generation Core parts.

Well, there is an entire history behind how I found out. Problem was that my pc was stuck in a booting loop. I basically tested everything. From cables, to BIOS, to PSU, to RAM... Then I used a spare CPU and it worked again. So that way I found out :). The reason I'm not going to use this CPU is that it's a downgrade from the one I had.
