Is the i3 processors usable for another 6 years ? Tags: CPUs Processors Last response: November 6, 2012 2:12 PM in CPUs Share spiketide November 6, 2012 2:04:26 PM Hello, Hi I am planning to build a medium level gaming rig that can play atleast Crysis 1/Assasins Creed Brotherhood (You get the idea), on a very tight budget. After much research based on performance and cost (cost, mainly!), I have rounded upon CPU : i3 - 3220 3.3 Ghz Mobo : DH61ZE / DH61BL (Please say which combo will be better) I already have a 9500 GT graphics card. So how does this config sound? Also, how long do you all think it will take for the i3 processors to get outdated? Thanks for sharing your inputs.

The 9500 GT is not a good option, it is very old and very low end. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Is the i3 processors usable for another 6 years ?
