Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.5GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Pentium Dual-Core brand was used for mainstream x86-architecture microprocessors from Intel from 2006 to 2009 when it was renamed to Pentium. The processors are based on either the 32-bit Yonah or (with quite different microarchitectures) 64-bit Merom-2M, Allendale, and Wolfdale-3M core, targeted at mobile or desktop computers.In terms of features, price and performance at a given clock frequency, Pentium Dual-Core processors were positioned above Celeron but below Core and Core 2 microprocessors in Intel's product range. The Pentium Dual-Core was also a very popular choice for overclocking, as it can deliver optimal performance (when overclocked) at a low price.

If you are low in budget then go for 650 and get a 450 watt psu. And for better performance u have to overclock your cpu later..

no, a g41 motherboard is NOT for an enthusiast and does not OC well. If you want to OC your CPU, go for a P43/P45 chipset motherboard and OC your CPU up to 3.5GHz with stock Intel cooler ;)

you're welcome… you can OC your CPU via RAM timings, but I doubt it would be stable though
