SC2 Build. $400-$500. - Page 3

post #21 of 24

The i3 will outscore every AMD processor in Starcraft II due to heavy coding optimization to favour Intel processors at higher CPU settings.

I would get an i3 having and AMD processor before.

Intel seems more stable, and more solid.

It seems like a tiny little processor that can pack a punch, and intel stays so progressive.

I don't think it would make a huge difference though, and I still think the AMD is still a great CPU

my brother is using his laptop i3 with 2gb ram.. radeon graphics.. runs like a charm.. cool and good graphics.. i3 shouldn't be a problem... i believe a desktop would be beast with i3/i5/i7 and a better gpu.. good luck...
