    800 and gaming and web use
  3. Compatible? Yes.
    Good? No.
    Balanced? No.

    Can you provide the currency type? What currency is 800? We're not psychic. ;)

    And for web use, 16GB is way over-doing it.
  4. do you need a case and monitor and everything?

    Could the i5 be downgraded?
  11. Yes. But why? And downgrade to what? Why do you want to downgrade it?
  12. Guys I know I said 800 But my dads paying for this and 800 would be a shocker
  13. ksham said:

    Perhaps he needs hyperthreading for something. That would explain wanting the i3.

    Edit: Or budget. Okay, $800 is out. How much do you have, then?

    You are, perhaps, thinking of the differences between the i5-3570k and the i7-3770k. The gulf between the i3-3220 and the i3-3470 is somewhat vast.

    I'm not sure how to answer that. Performance? Speed? Number of cores?

    I have to admit I'm kind of surprised. It's unusual to run into someone so determined to downgrade a CPU suggestion!
  27. 1. Dual core vs Quad core.
    2. i5 is faster overall.
    3. i5 is more future-proof.
    4. K-series => overclocking
    5. Better integrated graphics - HD 4000 vs HD 2000. (With the exception of the i5-3350P.)

    @Jack Revenant: we each have our moments. ;) Like that Sapphire card you beat me on.
