I know, i asked about i3 from my last post but this would be different.
Im really on a budget but i would spend more money on HD 7850.
But i also wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron G1610 to an i3 3210. is it a good idea?

to be honest you should really be upgrading to an i5 as celeron to i3 wont have a very pronounced difference

Yeah, im also thinking of that too.
It's just the price of an i5 here is Php8000+ and a HD 7850 Php8000+ or Php7000+ (If only I can have the money to buy the one on clearance sale fast)
