The G4400 does fine in terms of performance but I was just wanting to know what games won't boot up on a two thread CPU.
I3's are about double the price at 120$ avg but the performance boost is simply staggering overall imo. I would honestly try to talk him into a I3 6100 and a rx 480. the 6100 would give him both skylake and the option to upgrade it in the next 2 years without any issues aswell as super solid 1080p performance ( if he is gaming above this slap him. budget and 1440p+ dont go in the same sentence lol ) aside from that, listing games that wont boot, ****. idk. never had to even try that, i havent gamed on a dual core in YEARS, been quad core since the Q6600 released lol. Google games that wont boot on 2 cores? ive never had to budget build that hard before for gaming.
