Hello fellow Hexites!
I've decided I'm going to downgrade my Core i5 2310 CPU to something less powerful on my second rig, as I don't use it for much more than web browsing, a bit of Bluray watching, word processing, nothing really intensive.
I've decided I'll be downgrading to a Core i3 or as a last resort to a Pentium G620, G840 etc, would prefer to stick to the Core i3 range, the i3 2100 is more than suffice I'd say?
Would that be right?
I'd prefer to stick to the Core i3 2100 as supposedly its got the better GPU than the Pentium range, that and something else I can't recollect off the top of my head ATM. I'm looking to just use the on-board GPU, would this be alright for Bluray playback? This way, I could get rid of my HD5770 1Gb too.
BTW, whats a second hand Core i5 2310 CPU worth nowadays? Its just the CPU! I'll probably sell it with my Corsair H50 CPU Cooler which I've used on it until recently.
Thanks Hexites for your help!
