I always thought even the higher end models of Intel Pentium was super bad and unplayable for higher end games and I'm wondering if that's actually the case cause I'm really picky when it comes to my builds. Also, the PC is a budget build. So I can't afford Intel i7s or nothing really expensive.
Lol eventually if we keep leaning towards a CPU $10 more were gonna end with a i7 3990x xD. But seriously if you can afford peasant for an i3 or the 6300. But if you wanna go with the pentium you really can't go wrong. Its essentially an i3 without hyperthreading. And yes i play most games on high at playable framerates. Sometimes i turn really demanding games down to medium.
