Get a i3 3220/3225 and a b75 mobo instead. The ivy is a bit faster than the sandy
if you look above its my new build (reply to excella) i changed my motherboard to asrock b75 pro3-m, my ram to vengeance corsair 1600mhz and my psu to enermax tomahawk2.. if i buy the intel core i3 3220 will it actually be any better and will it be compatible? cause its only a $1 difference and could u please check if my new build is compatible?
