your answer is H67 and i3 :3
if that same AMD had 2 cores running, it would not even make half the performance of the equivalent intel i3 XD

I just happen to be using the i3 2100 and i still get 60+ fps in bfbc2, but i have pretty good gpu( gtx560ti) to so that could be it. I'm looking to max out Bf3. I know they said no one can max it out yet but we will see. If i cant max it out i will try and get the i5 2500k but money has been tight lately.

i3-2105 has hd3000, which you probably want. or I would save around $40 and think really hard about the g620. Not that much slower. Somewhere near a c2d @ over 3ghz, IIRC and low power.

hd2000 will still play HD content well.
