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
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.
very good budget cpu... went with intel cause will probably upgrade later
