AMD's 960t is the real budget king to me. You can grab one for $99 at MicroCenter(even online) ,add a $75 mobo and you have a rig that will outpace the G850 in everything, and that's before overclocking or unlocking.

i agree with this but seeing as how this is a gaming rig,
i think the op would be better off putting more money into the gpu than the cpu.
i am an owner of a 960T myself...eh well 1600T now lol

The only real problem with going with a 960T over a i3 or other cheap sandy is that you need to OC it to shine, and that requires a good motherboard as well as a somewhat decent cooler.

Money would be better spent on an i3($100), cheap mobo($50), 8GB 1333Mhz RAM($30) and a good GPU.

I have used a mixture of the current processors and for regular applications, you will not see a difference. You will not notice a difference when "moving around on the desktop" that person is bogus.

PII, i3 or i5 it does not matter. You will not see a difference when moving around on the desktop, that is a fact. The i3 is in fact the best thing for a budget gaming system. it will not bottleneck unless you have high end card(s).

^This ...Who has an i3-2100? let's run some gaming benchmarks..:lachen.gif: It may win @ Superpi..maybe..maybe not :lachen.gif:

I ditched a 54x multi 2500K yesterday..Notice which build i kept?
Intels kinda suck for doing regular stuff(SB ones) tbh..netburst was better with regular stufff :lachen.gif:
i.e opening control panel..opening windows..browsing..etc..etc AMD is also snappier when it comes to this..
1/2 second versus 6 seconds to open something
Intel chips are better for gaming..somewhat smoother gameplay..5-10 fps more..and load Windows faster..that's about it.
