Re: is this processer good enough
Your processor should do just fine with everything. Obviously if you went with the I7 you would have got more performance but then your not just looking at the 90 extra for the processor but also the extra money on the Motherboard, the extra money for DDR3 ram and so on.
What are your full system specs and we can let ya know better what type of performance gains your would have really got. And also what games you are talking about and what type of editing your are doing.
