G4560 or i3 7100 for my mom ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm buying a PC for my mom, just Internet browsing, movie streaming and games like Farmiville and other facebook junk. Is there a reason to buy i3 or G4560 is enough ? From my understanding they are pretty similar except for clock speed and pentium doesn't support some instruction set.

Thank you.

Pentium much better value and very similar performance to the i3.

so go for the pentium and spend the money you saved on more ram, it will help if she has lots of tabs open.

G4560. Put an SSD or some cheap RAM if you want to make up the difference.

The i3 has slightly better integrated graphics, but I don't think this will matter.

SSD isn't amazing, but the rest is good. Does CX450M have Green text or grey text on label?

Grey+Black.

The ssd is the cheapest. Is Intel 540p will be OK ?

I know Samsung is best, but it's kinda expensive.

Good, it's the newer, better unit. The 540p is mediocre, but heck, I'd stick with the Corsair considering the price.

Get the Corsair one instead, 540s is mediocre. There's not much difference

i did not look at board. Make sure it has 4 ram slots. Or get single 8gb, if it's just 2 ram slots. 

Case, 100r is imo much better looking.
