Comparing with our cpu's this one it's much weaker.
In general it's still good processor , 2 cores but 4 threads.

Bit of a late reply but the 270x beats the 750ti by quite a lot. For my area the 270x is only about £15 more.

I'd say that the 770 is going to be better performance wise but will cost much more than the 960. for CPU I'd say that the 4690k would be the best option. I wouldn't recommend going for 4GB of ram, 8GB is much better.

When gaming I'm always using more than 5GB of ram, especially when playing games like Battlefield 4.

No offense but that's what happens when you compare AMD to Intel in computing power.

2)i3 4130 h81m-gl and 4 gb ddr3 more money and:
3)3258 h81-(asus) 212 evo 4 gb ram. the MB and the evo are more expensive. I play WoT which uses 1 core so 2

I play a decent amount of pc games on on my build (see my page for build info) and I can run most on high settings with pretty good fps. The i3-4130 is a beast of a little dual core and the hyper threading helps this even more.

Go for an i5, a quad-core i5. Although this i3 is extremely good, a quad-core i5 is more beneficial in the long run. As you can see, I have a 2nd gen core i5-2400, and even today, I can run all games, even the most demanding ones, with ease. But the 2nd gen i3's are no longer powerful enough to run today's games such as Watch Dogs or upcoming games like GTA V and Far Cry 4. And a quad-core i5 will rarely cause a bottleneck, even with high-end GPU's.

Bro that Intel Core i3 4130 is 4rh gen processor is same as i5's 4rth gen processors ! Benchmarks indicates that i5 gives at least 5% better performance than Core i3 so why not go with core i3 ! Why wanna waste 100+ bucks in improving 5fps
