So is this a good gaming CPU because people are saying that this is used for servers and stuff, but some people are saying this for gaming too. I'm confused.

This is a server CPU.
You can use this for gaming,but you will not get good FPS,and a higher quality game would load this CPU quite a lot.

So is this a good gaming CPU because people are saying that this is used for servers and stuff, but some people are saying this for gaming too. I know that this can run games pretty good, but how long will I be able to play with atleast medium settings with a reasonable FPS. I'm confused.

This is a 3770 without integrated GPU (HD 4000) and 100mhz lower clock speed. Excellent choice for a gaming CPU.

Server processor. It performs like an i7, but cheaper. It is mainly used for work though, never designed for gaming. It can play games well, but not as well as an i5 or i7.

it's better to buy an i5 than this cpu, because it will not play games as good as an i5 2500k or i5 3570k this is a server cpu, it gets loaded by games really easy.
