Posts: 36
Hi so i was just wondering about building my own gaming rig, i do have another thread about that but i think that this thread is kind of a different question, in this thread i would like to know, well first of all the best budget intel core gaming rig , my budget is 400-500 dollars not including windows and a monitor. My next question about this was, Is an intel core i3 good for starcraft 2 and will it be good for other games aswell?

For your budget, an i3 is good for starcraft and for other games gpu matters a lot more. For example, with a 7850 and a pentium gpu, you can get 100+fps on battlefield 1080p.
Overclocking doesn't change a whole for performance. You can still do it but with an i3 but with limitations.
