Solved Core i3 3220 and HD6670 Tags: CPUs Core Last response: January 13, 2013 4:22 AM in CPUs Share kovzone January 13, 2013 1:13:22 AM Actually I've post this on comments, but since the thread has been solved I'm afraid there won't be any reply anymore, so I decide to create a new thread. this is my comment: Quote:lilotimz said:Get the G860 or G850 [if available] and use the rest of the cash to save up for a better GPU. An i3-3220 is no use at all if all you have is a HD6670. I'm newbie here, I've just bought core i3 3220 and HD6670 how could we know wether it's no use or not? how could we test it? and I what would you suggest? thx in advance More about : core 3220 hd6670 zander1983 January 13, 2013 2:05:03 AM I think what lilotimz said was that the i3-3220 is an entry level chip and that it will most probably be a bottleneck for your 6670. What are you planning on doing with the machine? It will be OK for general web browsing and enjoying the odd games here and there on medium settings. m 0 l kovzone January 13, 2013 2:19:34 AM zander1983 said:I think what lilotimz said was that the i3-3220 is an entry level chip and that it will most probably be a bottleneck for your 6670.

I thought he means that the 6670 is the bottleneck I think I just want to use it to play a game (like dota2, pes2013, fifa2013) in medium/high setting smoothly. would that build work? m 0 l Related resources battlefield 4 with core i3 3220 - Forum is it worth upgrading from Intel G3220 to Intel Core i3 4130 ??? - Forum Intel Core i3 3220 vs AMD FX-6300 - Forum Need a better motherboard for core i3 3220 - Forum core i3 or g3220 for a budget build? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

If not, then look at returning and upgrading to a better GPU m 0 l djangoringo a b à CPUs January 13, 2013 2:27:48 AM The i3 doesn't bottleneck the 6670, he was saying it was better to buy a pentium G8xx and get a better card with price difference, in which i agree. A pentium G8xx+7750 > i3+6670. m 0 l Best solution ASHISH65 a b à CPUs January 13, 2013 2:58:26 AM There is no bottleneck.you can go upto hd 7850 with i3 3220.
