Making my own comp, asking if okay. Tags: Homebuilt Processors Systems Last response: March 14, 2010 2:37 PM in Systems Share slashobeint March 14, 2010 4:34:41 AM I'm making a gaming computer with a low budget... 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. I noticed the 600W PSU - this is the one area you should never cut corners and go for a cheap brand PSU - so make sure you stick to a well known brand. obsidian86 a b B Homebuilt system March 14, 2010 10:16:41 AM i would consider an amd system before i try an i3 Can't find your answer ?
