Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Game Requirement Analysis

Pentium G3258 3.2GHz is a budget processor based on the 22nm, Haswell architecture.


It offers 2 Physical Cores (2 Logical), clocked at 3.2GHz and 3MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Virtualization is activated.


The processor integrates very weak Graphics called Intel HD Graphics Desktop (Haswell), with 10 Execution Units, initially clocked at 350MHz and that go up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode which share the L2 Cache and system RAM with the processor.
Both the processor and integrated graphics have a rated board TDP of 54W.


It offers average performance. This means it will become a bottleneck in some demanding applications.

I use it to play, though my "toughest" game is just re revelations 2 and it goes great at ultra, though the cpu usage reaches a 100 per cent, but some people also reaches to a 100 per cent of usage with better cpus, anyway it runs pretycool

Would this go well with the GTX 750 Ti while OC'd to 4GHz?

Its a destiny from the day they were born
marry G3258 overclocked with GTX 750 ti
best performance u can get without worrying about bottleneck
nice budget little processor
but the 2 threads will kill it in some games

No, especially if you overclock this processor.

This looks like a perfect CPU for my cousin! Only one question: How good is the stock cooler for this CPU and how high of an OC can the stock cooler withstand if good?

Sorry for the late reply, I own a G3258 and have the stock cooler. It runs 25-30 idle and 45-55 under load. I also have this clocked at 4.2GHz, no sweat from this little beast. Great value for money.

Late response, but the G3258 OCed would def. kill the i3-4160 but ONLY in dual core games. It would stutter in games like FC4 as it requires hyperthreading and multiple cores. I would recommend for you to get the i3-4160.

i3 core man… this is really good budget cpu and it performs really well but i3 of new gen is stronger, and also no need for extreme processor overclock for gaming or OC to nor bottleneck strong graphics. G3258 is great cpu but i3 better.

I still think this dual proccessor oc'ed is better than core i3.

Don't get me wrong, the i3 is a great processor. But since most games haven't really taken advantage of multi-core CPU's, the G3258 is perfect for most games. Especially when overclocked to 4.2GHz+
