    Well it comes down to personal preference.....The Athlon is SLIGHTLY better in multithreaded tasks whereas the Pentium is MUCH better in singlethreaded ones.

    I personally would take the Pentium over the Athlon ii x3 anyday..Had it been an Athlon ii x4 then I would have changed my opnion..
  2. pentium g2120 is faster than athlon in most game + way newer + consumes less power.my choice is g2120

    EXACTLY!!!!
  4. Get a Pentium G2020 as there is not much of a difference between the G2020 and G2120. And spend the saved money on a better graphics card if posssible. Since the difference with the same graphics card would be just 3-4 fps considering the fact that these chips are not overclockable.
  5. II x3 : 3 cores
    Pentium : 2 cores
    II x3 : L2 cache
    Pentium : L3 cache
    II x3 : AM3
    Pentium : LGA1155
    II x3 : AMD
    Pentium : intel
  6. All the above is correct but the 450 can be overclocked and has a possibility of unlocking cores, so should be considered if you will be overclocking but otherwise not.
