I'm building a budget gaming rig and am trying on deciding between the above two processers. I plan on using a dedicated video card so the integrated graphics dont mean much to me, but for the price I just feel like you cant beat the APU as an option for a CPU.

So which is better for gaming. ( I play SC2, WOW, Guild Wars 2, Airmech, and a plethora of random steam games) I wanna play games at at least a medium level. Also any recommendations for a decent budget video card.

Neither of those CPUs will allow medium settings in SC2 and other CPU intensive games. My opinion, save up more money for a proper PC as neither of those 2 was ever intended for gaming.

Wow, that's extremely not helpful. How about a few recommendations? And isn't the majority of the work done by the video card? Also, I was under the impression (from the many websites i've read) that the Ivry Bridge Celerons are just about on par with the i3's but without the hyperthreading.

The Celeron G1610 should be good for budget gaming.
Pair it with HD 7750 and it should run most games very well.

Get at least an i3. pentium will work but it a couple years simply won't cut it. SC2, wow, and especially Gw2 are quite cpu heavy (with a 7750 you will for sure be cpu bottlenecked in gw2 with a celeron--world vs world is going to be really tough--people with an i5 even drop below 20 fps in fights).

Get the celeron first and upgrade to an i5 or i7 later on when you can afford one.
