I don't care for the i3. IMO get a G3258 or jump up to an i5. For the same price you can get this AMD 8 core which will do more things better and be better for gaming.

Okay! I won't get that AMD Because I plan on upgrading to an intel high end in the future :) But thanks for the advice I'll probably look into a G3258 or low end i5
