I3 sandy bridge for streaming,browsing.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I want to get a sandy bridge and forgoe any graphics cards, or integrated graphics. I understand that the GPU is integrated on to a i3 sandy bridge.

How would it compare to the amd zacate in terms of video games.

How well could I expect it to stream videos?

Could I get away with just having a hdmi port and integrated graphics card, or stand alone graphics card and connecting it directly to my monitor this way?

Also how does this compare vs lga 1156 i3's in terms of integrated gpu's.
Thanks

I wondered the same thing myself because I was looking into making a HTPC so I poked around and found some benchmarks on the Intel 2000 and 3000 integrated graphics. (2000 is what is going to be in the I3) It looks like you can still play some mainstream games on low settings without a dedicated video card. As far as how it compares to the zacate I am not sure but I have seen it compared to the Intel Atom on graphics and it came up a little shy.
