I have heard bad things about AMD upgrades (CPU wise)

What drove you to choose that over a G3258?

The G3258 Is a Dual-Core CPU with no Hyperthreading. And these days, Two Threads won't get you very far gaming-wise. More and more games are starting to use more than 2 threads, So it won't be long until Dual-Core CPU's become obsolete for good.
