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.

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 have to admit I'm kind of surprised. It's unusual to run into someone so determined to downgrade a CPU suggestion!

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.)
