I would like to use this for occasional gaming- I typically play Diablo 3, SCII, and Dota 2. I know they do not require the higher spec hardware devices, but I would like to play them on high settings with ease. Looking around the $400-$700 price range so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, am I missing anything for a complete desktop build....is everything I listed compatible? Thanks a lot.
There wasn't that much to save on besides that also, what wrong with the 4300? From what I have heard it is outperforming the 8 cores from bulldozer, and even if it is not much better if any better at all at games than an i3, it still will do everything else better. Also tomshardware pitted the 4170 and i3 3220 against each other, and the i3 only won in gaming by like 7%
