Reccomend this CPU?
Nov 24, 2011, 10:09 AM
I plan on buying a new computer and I just want to know if this is a good CPU:
Intel Core i5 2500 Processor LGA1155 3.3GHz
I intend to play some pretty graphically demanding games (Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Crysis 2) and just want to know if i'll have any trouble running them at high settings.
Thanks in advance!

You should be able to rum those games at high settings with this processor -- you´ll need a good graphic card tough.

+1 its a great CPU but the GPU is more important fpr gaming ie an i3 2100 with a redeon 6950 would game better than an i5 2500 and a radeon 6770.
