My MB died a few days back :frown:. RIP . Time to get new one. and that means getting a new processor as well. No point getting a discontinued / old LGA775 MB for my quad core now. Although i'd love to get a 2500K, i just cant afford one at the moment. i5 2400 is there but again its only slightly cheaper than 2500. The next in line, i.e available in local market, is i3-2120. 3.3GHz. 2 physical cores. 4 with HT. (and no, there is NO AMD :bang:. for some strange reason AMD has totally vanished from our local market ) My question, is it any good for gaming ? I have seen the benches on Anandtech and it beats my quad core. and i was happy with my quad. so it should do. right ? would love to hear the opinion of anyone actually using it though. I play/currently playing BFBC2(yep, no BF3 yet), Crysis 2, ME3 and Deadspace 2. So thats the line up. Based on natural progression i will be getting Crysis 3 and Deadspace 3 when they come out. So should i go for it. would love to hear any advise / opinions. Thanks.
