Is it worth to buy i3-2120. Or pentium g850 will be good.

typical tasks is: in the same time, open 30-50 tabs in google chrome, listen lossless music, open google earth, read few pdf's, watch hd video on youtube.

Is g850 will be slows down somethimes or not.

>50 tabs

learn to close them, lol

but yes the g5xx and higher should be plenty to do that, they are a powerful bang for the buck .

i3 would be worth it to upgrade however.

With all that going on why haven't you considered a quad-core cpu? Do you have a strict budget?

How much RAM will you be getting? I would suggest 8GB to help handle all those applications.

If it has to be between those 2 cpus, for all those tasks then go with the i3-2120. It will handle all of that a bit better than the pentium.

I agree with maui67. I would do atleast 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM and an I3.

8 gigs of ram (kingston 1333), wd5000aakx (7200 rpm, sata 6 gbp/s), integrated gpu (hd 2000), win 7 home basic.
Strict budget.
Thanks for answer. Sorry for my english
