Did I do the right thing?

Hi, I am building a budget gaming computer and I was having doubts about getting the i3-2120 over one of the AMD quads. So could someone tell me if I did the right thing. Like I heard that the AMD processors run cooler than the Intels, but I’m not sure what to think. So could someone point me in the right direction please

  1. For gaming the Intel CPU's beat AMD at any given price range. The i3 is specially good for a budget gaming PC. You can easily eradicate any doubts by looking at benchmarks all over the internet. The i3 will beat it's AMD competitors in mostly anything except heavy threaded applications that favor multi cored CPUs

    Hello,

    You did the right thing. You will be able to upgrade your CPU if you require more power. However the i3 is still pretty good right now. If you ever need more CPU power - and I5 would be a very good upgrade, however you shouldn't need to for a while.
