Great budget CPU. Good enough to handle games relatively easy and hyper-threading is a plus making it an decent well-rounded CPU

I originally considered getting the Intel Pentium G3258 for my build but there was a sale and I could fit this processor into the budget. I like that is has 2 cores and hyper-threading so I wasn't concerned about multitasking. Its also a very strong processor for basic computer uses and slightly overkill for my build. Its very quiet during operation using the stock CPU cooler.

Pros: Hyperthreading, fast, cool.

Cons: Stock cooler sucks, just 2 cores, it has got a crappy GPU (256 vram lol).

Probably the best CPU for the price

Was looking for a cheaper processor that has good reviews for gaming. So far it's living up to it's billing!

Very quick. I can't imagine what an i7 is like. I have no complaints so far. Got it for 110$ through newegg

Fast and simple, what more do you need

Nice and speedy chip for a basic build, I've heard it does OK with light gaming too if you're so inclined. A bit on the pricey side, but hey, it's Intel, aren't they always?

This is a great CPU for multi-tasking, gaming, and pretty much any other type of normal use. It's great, especially if your on a budget

Intel Core i3-4150 : Great CPU option for budget builds.Even though it is a dual core processor,it has hyperthreading and it can run most games on max settings 1080p at 40-45 FPS.The initial reason I went with this CPU is because I was on a pretty tight budget (I'm 13 Y/O).This CPU though will only be in my PC for a year and I'm planning to upgrade to an i5 next year beacuse I design graphics for school and I need a faster CPU and this one just doesn't cut it.I will not throw away the i3 though as I will be putting it inside my fathers HP desktop which currently has a Pentium G3258 in it.

P/S dont get scared by the CPU temps listed,even though I use a Hyper 212X,I couldn't get any lower idle temps due to the average ambient temperature in Malaysia being 33 Degrees Celsius.
