Which computer processor?

    Light gaming, video editing, and normal day to day home/office uses (web browsing, downloading, photo editing, office applications)

    Intel i3 540 (2 x 3.06Ghz cores - 4 threads, 4Mb L2 Cache)

    AMD Phenom X4 9750 Quad Core (4 x 2.4Ghz cores)

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 Quad Core Processor (4 x 2.5Ghz cores, 3Mb L2 Cache)

    AMD Althon II X4 630 Quad Core Processor (4 x 2.8Ghz cores)


    I'd personally go for one of the bottom 2..

    What is your budget though? These processors have different socket types so I assume that you have not yet already got a motherboard?


    Intel core Q8300 It has more cores than the i3 and performs faster for higher resolutions as you direct Physx to the CPU if you do not have SLI/Crossfire. I currently have my Q8400 atm with 2x GTX 460 and it plays every game max @ 300 inches on my 1920x1080 projector So i'd defo take the Q8300 as it is only a little behind. But if you can spend a little more get a Q9950

    Hope this helps
