Intel Core i3-3250 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637I33250 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500

Pros: -2nd Highest clock speed of any modern dual core CPU
-Acceptable on-board graphics

Cons: -Locked multiplier
No PCI-E 3.0 support

Other Thoughts: Great CPU for the Price, and being the best i3 of its generation and all the generations prior I find minimal difference between a Haswell system and an Ivy Bridge system of this tier. Theres a lot of confusion surrounding the on-board graphics of these types of CPU's. In short if you don't want the on-board graphics then just pretend they aren't there. On-board graphics do not detract from your after market graphics card in the slightest, You are outputting through your graphics card and as such your OS will not utilize the CPU's graphics. If you want to be doubly certain the on-board graphics are not impacting CPU performance you may uninstall or opt to never install the on-board graphic's driver in the first place. Device manager will show an error and this would only further confirm that it is not functioning. With all this said the on-board graphics are a great safety net in case of video card failure and should not be seen as a negative.

5 out of 5 eggs 03/04/2013

This review is from: Newegg Free CPU Magazine Coupon

Pros: Really fun magazine, it's a joy to read at work.

Cons: None really, maybe just that I wish there were more super technical articles in the magazine.

Other Thoughts: I've got a separate gmail box for them so I can easily go back and reference them for xyz.

Intel Pentium G630 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 2.7 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623G630 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics

Pros: Stout chip that has given me zero problems in my MSI H61M-P31 G3 motherboard. It can handle CS:GO using it's intel hd2000 graphics on low settings with an average of 35fps. Windows 7 and 8 both work like butter on this chip. Spend the money on other components in your system and look no further than the Intel Pentium G series processors.

Cons: It lacks certain features the I series processors have but unless you are doing network administration or something out of the norm you won't miss them.

Other Thoughts: Seriously for less than 70.00 dollars you cant beat how much of a Full blown processor this is. Buy this and wait for the ivy bridge i7's to drop in price. For two more dollars I would go back and get the G860 but it wasn't out when I bought this guy.
