Comments, Questions & Reviews:
This cpu by Giovy
How is this compared to the Q8400 quadcore CPU in your super special? In terms of performance? Games?
Well firstly the Q8400 is socket 775 and this is socket 1156 so you need to choose the correct processor based on the socket on your motherboard. If you need the quadcore then go for that. If it is not a requirement, the i3 is generally better
Gaming by Avijeet
Is this the ideal processor for high level of gaming and newer games? If not, what would you recommend to work well with a Nvidia graphics card?
This is a decent CPU for gaming, yes. Not the most powerful out there but a good balance of cost and performance. All CPUs should work fine with nVidia GFX cards really.
