What budget CPU?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm building a PC for my Brother's friend.

He's got £250 to spend and so I'm looking at either:

AMD Athlon II X2 250
OR
Intel Pentium G620

It'll need to play minecraft and I've not got enough budget for a dedicated card.

Sadly, the IGP on the family i3-2100 can't play minecraft so I doubt the G620 will cope either.

Would say the pentium would be the better choice but the althlon runs cooler, But a good little oc on the pentium and it should be a good runner

Pentium is a Sandy Bridge (Non-K) so can't be overclocked.

Temps aren't an issue since it'll be on stock OC and HSF anyway.

I just need raw benchmarks for the G620 vs X2 250.
