More about which gaming intel 2100
  1. The dual core Intel Core i3 will beat the quad core Phenom II X4 in games. There is no real contest.

    The Phenom II X4 will perform better with other multi-threaded programs like video encoding and compressing / decompressing Zip/Rar files.

  3. If your usage is mainly gaming, you are better off with the i3-2100 and a H61 motherboard. The i3-2100 matches up with other CPUs (quad cores included) despite the price difference. It's the best bang for your bucks. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-gaming-cpu-core-i3-2100-phenom-ii-x6-1075t,2859-10.html
