Default Budget processor - is this the right one?

Hi,

I'm after a new processor, on a budget. I've been told this - http://www.processorghz.co.uk/u/pp/p...g3000ft/274735 - will suit my system, but I'm wondering whether it's good enough? I mostly use the relevant PC for just general web browsing and listening to music..

Thanks!

Well, we can't say whether it will suit your system without seeing it - but as long as you're not doing anything too demanding (your listed uses will be fine) and it's compatible, it'll perform with no problems at all.

That said, you could probably get one a lot cheaper than the prices listed there!

That's a generic processor. My friend tried gaming on one of those...it's fair at best for gaming. But other than that, for your intended use. I think its fine.
