Intel Core i3 530 Processor BX80616I3530 - 2.93GHz, LGA 1156, OCZ DDR3 4MB L3 Cache, Dual-Core, Retail Processor w/ Fan, 600watt power supply, WD harddrive 320gb, asus mother board, ASus ENGTS250 GeForce GTS 250 GDDR3 1 GIG PCI EXPRESS 2, samsung hard drive. I'm just worried about the processor is it good enough or should I buy the i5? More about : making comp ulysses35 March 14, 2010 9:34:20 AM i5 would be my own personal preference but the i3's are very capable CPU's and overclock well too.
