Intel Pentium G2030 / 3 GHz processor

a Decent budget processor

Kosenator

Pros: Adequate for low- to medium res gaming and movies

Cons: Not strong at 3D and hi-res

I had one of these 1155 Pentium CPUs for a year, give or take a few days. With 8 GB RAM and a Gigabyte GT 730 GPU added onto an ASRock H61M-VS4 Motherboard, the G2030 was quite capable of doing small 3D renderings in TurboCAD, and it can handle older games like Xcom and the UT series, though not on hi-res. There was also no problem with movie watching, (as long as all necessary codecs are...

AMD Athlon X4 860K 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ Desktop Processor (BLACK EDITION)

“From what I have gathered, this chip is an a10-7850k without the iGPU. For the price difference between the two, a discrete graphics card can be purchased which will out perform the iGPU. Another bonus is the memory bandwidth is not shared with the GPU giving more to the CPU and all the RAM goes to the CPU. As for performance, its still performs as well as an apu can. They are a bit slow...” --PhillyB

“I'm writing this review because there is a lack of reviews out there for the 750K and 760K. I'l talk about the 750K briefly as well since that information is related. The difference between the chips is that the 750K is based on the Trinity APU, and the 760K is based on the revised Richland APU. Since they use the same piledriver CPU architecture and the integrated graphics is disabled, there...” --damric

“Enough of the jokes. I take Tom's "Best CPU" monthly articles literally...for gaming (of which I not much of a), "if you're not going to OC, you probably don't need more than a 4440.) And when I was looking of an i5 for this new build I'm now working on, I saw an offer of this i5-4440 for only $168 at NCIX, it seemed that it would do. Review is predicated on a damned good price basically....” --dennphill

“I recently built this into a budget gaming/work PC. I was stuck between a cheap i3, and a much more expensive i5, and this seemed to be a nice compromise. 4 cores is nice, but this will handily out run and quad core, as long as no more than 2 cores are used. At 3.8 GHz Stock, this has more than enough speed, and I have been able to push this cpu to extreme performance. It is matched with a...” --Macgyverman1123

“Gotta love ppl not real 8 cores when in fact it is it's a 4 modules cpu with 2 cores in each modules that share resources get over it it's a 8 core and AMD came out with it first now Intel will come out with one. Mine OC great runs well with a h212 OC n the winter with push n pull but really loves to be on water when room temp is hot. At 4ghz my h212 had no problems even when my room had no AC...” --STRATUSRT02

“First off love this processor! You have to understand it is dual core with no HT (Hyper threading). Once you get past that, than you'll see this is one of the best bangs for your buck! I currently have one of these powering my spouse's gaming rig. I have overclocked it to 4.6Ghz at 1.38-1.4v. At this OC it beats out my i7 4930k in single core performance. For most games such as Arma 2+3,...” --DamselinDistres

“I have to say that overall I am extremely pleased with my i7 4790k purchase and it's performance. It is so incredibly fast, and is actually just a hair shy of a $500 i7 3930k in most tasks which says a lot. That really is a big deal for a $300 proc. The 4790k idles strangely cool, in the low 20's (C) with my Corsair H80i, and is about 8-10C cooler than an i7 4770k at idle all things being...” --hapkiman
