Intel Pentium G850 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623G850 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000

Pros: This is an update to my earlier review on this, and I must say, this thing is pretty amazing. I have gotten Battlefield 3 to get medium settings with high texture quality at 1440x900 resolution, and it rarely lags, even on 64 player servers with a whole bunch of nonsense going on. It also puts Diablo 3 to shame, getting a constant 60 frames, with lows coming from lag spikes in my connection I would think, and highs soaring into the 100s, and this is with vsinc on mind you. There really isn't a thing that this can't do from what I have done, it is an amazing buy to anyone looking forward using this more and hopefully getting an i5 so that can completely demolish whatever I want to as well

Cons: That this made me give it a cons section

Intel Pentium G850 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623G850 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000

Pros: I got a computer built for me that has this processor in it and i have to say that i am really surprised. Coming into it, i knew that it was only dual core and didnt have hyper-threading support, but this chip does not disappoint. The most intensive game i have run so far is Guild Wars 2, and paired up with a good enough graphics card, it runs it max, at around 60fps. It will run minecraft of upwards of 120fps with a 128x128 texture pack, same with tekkit which can greatly decrease the performance. It also does Planetside 2 with medium settings at 1440x900 (my screen resolution) without lag, and with out getting too hot. Counter-Strike Global Offensive runs like a dream, never gets hot and still with amazing graphics. Compared to my craptop (has an amd dual core) which took like 5 minutes to get to the point where i could do stuff, this thing is amazing.

Cons: The only game i have had trouble with is Team Fortress 2, it can run it, the processor just gets hot. I'll probably just do some tweaking and make it so i can play again

Other Thoughts: Get the G860, its faster and cheaper, but this isnt enough for me to knock off an egg for.

Pros: Look somewhat cool

Cons: I have used these enough to know that my skullcandys that have static in one ear piece and the other, you have to hold the mp3 player in an awkward position to work, and the sound quality in the skullcandys is still better, and i got them for 10 bucks. So if you are thinking of getting these, don't the skullycandys are at least 2 times better, the Skullcandy Lowriders are also better, and you can get the for around 20 dollars

Other Thoughts: I do not own them, but i have used my friends, and i must say that they deserve to be like 15 dollars at most. It is a terrible idea to buy one of these, go for Skullcandy or Bose
