I have a budget of £100 and im currently using a pentium G620 .. and in most games and applications its suprisingly capable .. together with a GTX550ti and 8gb of 1333mhz ram it runs most games at medium to high detail
however my question is would the "Intel Core i3-2120 "( http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Inte... ) be a worthwhile upgrade or would it be wasted
as with all upgrades your looking for a improvement,and my last upgrade ( a 128gb ssd ) was probally the best ive ever done .. but i dont want to buy this core i3 2120 and see little if any improvement in performance
obviously a core i5 would be the better choice however the cheapest is £139 which is over my budget ...
ive even considered buying the "AMD Athlon X4 750K Black Edition"( http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/AMD+... ) along with the MSI FM2-A55M-E33 AMD A55 ( http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Motherboards+... ) giving me a quad core however would this be faster than the pentium G620 on a H61 chipset motherboard
any advice guys will be much appreciated
what about a GTX650 to replace the GTX550ti... however from what ive seen the memory bandwidth is only 80gb/sec compared to 98gb/sec with the GTX550ti... granted core and memory clocks are better and its kepler .. however again its a slight upgrade ....
