Excellent budget CPU
on 19 January 2015
Great budget CPU. Determining the performance of CPUs is very difficult and not just a function of the clock speed. I decided to purchase the G3220 because it showed good performance results on a number of web sites and seemed good value for money. It works flawlessly with the H81M-S2H motherboard from Gigabyte and make for a great budget system. With 4GB of Corsair DDR3 RAM and an NVIDIA PCI-E graphics card, it is capable of running all my apps and games on Windows 8.1 32-bit (this was an upgrade from an aging Pentium 4 dual core system).
I also have another PC with a G3240 and one with a core i3 (3.2GHz) and there is no noticeable difference in performance.
The cooling fan runs quiet and doesn't look stressed.
Overall a great upgrade.
