    The G9650 is embarrassingly bad. If your thinking of buying any of those for a new build go for the proper i3 - if your not too fussed by buying AMD over Intel you would probably yield better results getting an AM3 motherboard and Athlon X4.

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Any numbers to back that up?
    seems like an i3 with 3mb cache and no HT wouldn't be anything like 'embarrassingly bad' ??

    The Pentium isn't great. At that price it's either save up for i3 or go for AMD.
