hi
i want to buy a intel cpu for my upgrade maybe for this six-month, my budget are really limited around 70-130 . maybe1 year later i can buy more powerful cpu , like the i5 or i7 .
I think of these 2 for now :

- Intel Pentium g3220 @ 3.0ghz
- Intel Core i3 4130 @ 3.4ghz

i will use cpu for gaming . Will i3 4130 worth on the budget against g3220 ? will the performance on today games really significant different ?

Best solution

The i3 is definitely better than the Pentium in newer titles. Personally, I would rather have an FX 6300 over an i3 though.

In BF4 it will make a difference for sure. BF4 will take advantage of the i3's hyperthreading. The pentium you listed is just a regular dual core and slower clocked. The i3 will work similar to a quad core due to hyperthreading. Not as well as if it were a true quad core, but better than a straight dual core. Pentiums were removed off the best gaming CPU's for the money, and the i3's remained, for this reason. GPU will matter a good deal though too.

i'm thinking that maybe be I go for the g3220 , so I can save around $40-50 to my saving for the i5 or i7 .
but so you're saying that better buy $118 i3 4130 than the $65 Pentium g3220

oh yeah and for the FX-6300 you suggest , what the good mobo for that

Gigabyte 970a-ud3 is a good board for the FX 6300. The Asus MA597 R2.0 isn't bad either. Doesn't overclock quite as well, but still a solid board.
