I'm guessing the G3258 was $30 less. But to really make use of it's overclocking potential, you'd inevitably need an aftermarket cooler, which would put the price difference to 0. That and, as mentioned already, hyperthreading make the i3 seem like a better choice.

This is not true. You can OC the pentium EASY with stock cooler. It runs actually about 50 degrees celcius while load @ stock ;)

I have a G3258, and overclocked it matches the i3 in game-performance. Multithreaded tasks like rendering will run like shit tho.

The 4150 easily outperforms the G3258.
