I want to buy my brother his own desktop computer but I don't know whether to get an AMD FX-4100 or an Intel i3 2120. He's into gaming lately but I can only afford a budget pc. All the other specs are the same. So which should I buy? 1GB GeFORCE GT630 DDR5 More about : amd 4100 intel core 2120 amuffin a c 183 à CPUs a b å Intel a b À AMD January 29, 2013 7:57:27 AM Gaming would be the i3-2120.

That way it'll run better. What's your budget?
