Despite what you've heard elsewhere, the anniversary Pentium starts to show it's weakness for multithreaded games and applications, as two cores without hyper-threading slogs through newer stuff that doesn't explicitly-refuse to run due to the low core count. There's workarounds to cheese your way past CPU blocks, but it's not really a load-bearing CPU if you have your eye on The Witcher or GTAV
>>52257967 I've got a g3258 sitting at 4.4ghz right now in my main machine, (pretty bad chip ik) - can confirm it doesn't perform well at all in multithreaded games / apps, it stutters weirdly when playing cpu-intensive modern games...
If you're genuinely gaming on the cheap for the long-haul, a used i7 950 and 1366 board on eBay continue to go a long way if you're for-sure not wanting to be gimped CPU-wise for games, as despite being an older CPU, the architecture and single-threaded performance continues to kick the shit out of any modern APU or low-end Intel CPU
Also, both those GPU's are crap, 2GB really doesn't cut it like it used to for games, and they're both rebrands of last-gen hardware that wasn't really that great even when it was new. A used R9 280 won't set you back that much, and it continues to be a great mid-range card years after release
Never buy current gen budget parts when decent shit from a few years ago will more than suit your needs in comparison
