Bad combo. The i3 2100 is super weak and a bad match with a RX580. You'll need to get a much quicker CPU to make good use of it.

bad combo. but refurbs usually aren't a bad deal. just depends.

Usually they are used items that are cleaned up and tested to work. usually a safe bet for stuff that doesn't have a high failure rate with age.

i3 2100 but this two are REFURBISHED

Refurbished?? A 8 year old CPU refurbished?? More likely used and tested, anything more

Don't pair anything before the i7 3770K/i5 4690K (you have good old CPUs like the XEON but their mobos are a bit expensive) with a RX 580

Still low end. i7-2600 is the minimum for that gen imo, or Xeon E3-1230, which is more or less the same chip.

Yeah, thats a no from me captian.

 

I used to game on an i5-2100. Not a god awful chip, but can't keep up today. Also, an RX580 is such a cheap card now a days buying refurbed isn't worth it.
