So I am building a budget rig ($700 budget... 600 after WIN7) for gaming.
The i3 2130 sandy and i3 3220 ivy are the same exact price.
I am going to be getting a z77 MOBO regardless of which processor I get.
Does sandy support pci-e 3.0? Dual Channel RAM?
Which one should I choose????
And no I am not going to switch to AMD. Opinions are opinions but bench marks don't lie
