    from completed build El Cheapo

    This i3 runs exceptionally well given its age and the fact there is only 2 cores. It pushes most of my AAA titles alongside an RX 480 in a budget rig and I see no bottleneck. At 3.8GHz and more than 4 when boosted its still an impressive processor after 2 years. If you can manage to get one at a good price go for it. However, a Ryzen 2200 or 1200 could easily beat it for a lot less brand new.
