Intel Celeron G530 good for gaming? Tags: CPUs Celeron Intel Gaming Last response: September 7, 2012 11:25 AM in CPUs Share Altiris September 7, 2012 12:45:01 AM Is the Intel Celeron G530 good for light gaming? Im a on a strict budget and I can't get anything higher, I want to know if its good though. Games I will be playing: Call of Duty 4, Minecraft (I will not be playing BF3, or if I will I will put all settings to low) I will have an AMD 6670 and will be playing at 1920x1080 resolution. Will the Celeron G530 bottleneck the GPU? I have looked at some videos of people playing BF3 and 1920x1080 with the same specs so im guessing no right?

If you can step up to a Pentium do. Altiris September 7, 2012 1:16:22 AM yeah I would like to but im on a really tight budget, by the time I can upgrade Id rather get an i3 because the performance boost from the celeron to the pentium wouldnt be that great no?
