More about cpu good bad
  1. I was planning to full the 4 RAM slots is it good idea or bad
  2. CPU is ok. Running 4 sticks is a good idea just make sure they are ALL (exactly) the same.
  3. no reason to fill all the ram slots, just use 2 slots, that way you can upgrade later. the cpu is fine, wouldn't want to spend any more money on the cpu with that graphic card anyway. If anything spend less on the cpu and more on the gpu if this is a gaming rig. Oh, and the PSU, is a piece of crap, get a reliable brand like Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair, there is a reason they cost a little more but a 450w Antec will probably outperform a 600w cheap brand psu.
  4. how about the Corsair VS450 450 watts is this good now

    ^ Yes. Dont skimp on the PWS.
  6. FCK THIS WILL Cost me 21440 Phil. Currency 536$
  7. Decent build, but you don't need the extreme4 mobo for an i3. Get a cheaper board and maybe try to step the gpu up to a 650ti.

    agreed...

    ...and to the OP's original Question: The i3 3220 is a good performing cpu for the money.
