Is the celeron G550 enough for me? Tags: CPUs Last response: October 21, 2012 6:08 PM in CPUs Share chriotte October 21, 2012 6:01:18 PM Hello I have some PC parts, Cabinet, hdd, psu, gpu and dvd drive. Im looking at building a pc and I need a mainboard, ram and cpu. My current pc is a Acer 5930g (and a old Dell dimension 5000). The computer will be used for Starcraft 2 and Civilization 5, web development and programming (java + others). So do you think the Intel celeron g550 will be enough? For example compared to the i3 (that is almost 3 times as expensive). My current CPU scores around 1800 in CPU mark, the g550 2348 points (http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Celeron+G...) So its not a huge upgrade. Are there any other alternatives? For example will the pentium G640 be a better choice? I got a gt8600 for free from a friend. This is a old and not powerfull card. How do you think it will run SC2? More about : celeron g550 jay_nar2012 a c 109 à CPUs October 21, 2012 6:08:14 PM The Sandy bridge celerons and pentiums will be enough for your use. I think they would be able to run SC2 quite well and Civ 5 ok on low mainly because of the GPU. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
