    Intel Core i3-4150 : Great CPU option for budget builds.Even though it is a dual core processor,it has hyperthreading and it can run most games on max settings 1080p at 40-45 FPS.The initial reason I went with this CPU is because I was on a pretty tight budget (I'm 13 Y/O).This CPU though will only be in my PC for a year and I'm planning to upgrade to an i5 next year beacuse I design graphics for school and I need a faster CPU and this one just doesn't cut it.I will not throw away the i3 though as I will be putting it inside my fathers HP desktop which currently has a Pentium G3258 in it.

    P/S dont get scared by the CPU temps listed,even though I use a Hyper 212X,I couldn't get any lower idle temps due to the average ambient temperature in Malaysia being 33 Degrees Celsius.

    This is a great CPU for multi-tasking, gaming, and pretty much any other type of normal use. It's great, especially if your on a budget

    Was looking for a cheaper processor that has good reviews for gaming. So far it's living up to it's billing!

    Great budget CPU. Good enough to handle games relatively easy and hyper-threading is a plus making it an decent well-rounded CPU

    Does what it needs to. Its a little slow in some more CPU intensive games.

    I originally considered getting the Intel Pentium G3258 for my build but there was a sale and I could fit this processor into the budget. I like that is has 2 cores and hyper-threading so I wasn't concerned about multitasking. Its also a very strong processor for basic computer uses and slightly overkill for my build. Its very quiet during operation using the stock CPU cooler.

    Great dual-core processor that is able to handle games just fine. The only flaw is that it is not a cheap processor looking at the fact that it still is a dual-core.
