Core i3-2100 3.1GHz Review
Core i3-2100 3.1GHz is a middle-class CPU based on the 32nm, Sandy Bridge architecture.

It offers 2 Physical Cores (4 Logical), clocked at 3.1GHz and 3MB of L3 Cache.
Among its many features, Turbo Boost and HyperThreading are activated.

The processor integrates weak Graphics called Intel HD Graphics 2000, with 6 Execution Units, initially clocked at 850MHz and that go up to 1100MHz, 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 65W.

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

There would be bottleneck there.Not big,but there would be some.And since you cannot overclock this CPU (it is locked) to lower the bottleneck,I would not recommend you getting 7850 with this CPU :)

Nope, sorry bud. This CPU is really old, I'm due for an upgrade. It has served me well though. Here's a link to the compatible mobos for this CPU :) http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?pid=658&moboList=Core%20i3-2100%203.1GHz
