    Built a budget rig today, this with an 7850, 8 gig of memory and 120G SSD pretty much handles everything I can throw at it.
    If you are really on a budget I recommend getting this instead of an i5 and put the extra 100$ in a better video card, which makes all the differences. This won’t be a bottleneck for most of the games.

    In my quest to build a quality gaming PC on a budget I stumbled upon the i3-3220. It’s a powerful current generation processor that will ensure your system is future proofed for several years to come. For $5 you get a 10% improvement in performance over last year’s i3-2120 so, why not? I bought this off Newegg but there are no reviews up on Amazon, so I’ll give you one!

    While there are games out that can utilize four cores there aren’t a whole lot of them out there. Including new releases you’ll be able to play 99% of what’s out on maximum settings providing you have the graphics card to match. The only titles that won’t stay at a consistent 60+ fps are games like Battlefield 3 where you have enormous 64 player games.

    In my Steam library the most graphic intensive games I have are the Crysis games, a heavily modded Skyrim, Arkham City, and Max Payne 3. So far, they’ve all been at a consistent 60+ fps with everything turned up. I know for a fact the upcoming titles I’m interested in (Black Ops 2, Tomb Raider, Crysis 3) will play the same.

    So, if you’re on a budget and want to save the $100 I can safely recommend this over the 3570K. You also save money on a third party heat sink. At idle I’m seeing 28-33c and 60ish on a full load. I’m very happy with this purchase.

    My Build:
    Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
    Intel Core i3-3220
    G. Skill Ares Series 8GB (2×4) RAM
    HIS Iceq X 7850 (OC’d)

    I picked up the 3220 to replace a G630 in a recent build nothing wrong with the Pentium chip just that the 3220 is so much better at all task. IMO unless your into maxed out gaming quad cores are a waste of money for home use. I coupled the 3220 with a mid range video card and 4gb of memory couldn’t be happier with the results with those components bought at sales I’m under the cost of a single good quality quad. The 2500 IG on the 3220 has gotten decent reviews so for high def. playback a video card is not needed. I use an external 3.0 USB HD, performance was not a step up but a leap forward with the 3220 compared to the 630. To top it off it uses ten watts less than the 630, a good value for a work horse of a processor.

    cons: The miserable excuse for a cooler Intel provides. I replaced it with an inexpensive 92mm aluminum after market unit it runs quiet and keeps the chip cool.
