Intel g2020 bottleneck hd 7850/gtx 650 ti boost

I am trying to build a budget gaming pc and I am wondering if the g2020 will bottleneck any of the gpus in the title. Should i spend some extra money and get a core i3 3220.
Prices: Intel g2020- 65
Core i3 3220- 132

  1. May you see some bottlenecking with the Intel® Pentium® G2020 with the HD7850 or GTX 650ti? Yes you might but it most likely is small enough that it wont make a lot of difference in your overall performance. The issue is for at least for the Intel Pentium and the Intel Core™ i3 they are both dual core processors and as such they maybe limited on their performance on heavy multi-threaded applications.

    Thanks. I play at a small resolution (1280x1024). Should i save the money and put them into other parts ex. get more ram?
  3. At low resolution you shouldnt run into any problems getting good performance with the Intel® Pentium® G2020 and the HD7850 aor GTX 650ti. For ram aim for 8GB this is more than you will need but still gives you some room to grow in the future.

    Thanks, appreciate the help.
  5. i think that bottleneck can be ignored to get 650Ti boost :P
