Intel Core 2 Duo E6300

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So im building a budget rig for my sister on windows 8. All she will be doing on it is websurfing and typing.

I found a deal for this cpu at only $7. Will this handle windows 8 well enough? I know it's ancient, but it isn't like she plans to run crysis 3...

Should i go for it? tongue.gif

It will handle Windows 8 without problems. Pair it with 4gb and a decent hard drive and it will be good to go. thumb.gif
