Rated 4 out of 5 by Callum770 Fast and cheap chip
I bought the Pentium G3220 for a media centre and it performs brilliantly. It does not limit games in any way, the processor is very fast for £50 and it does everything I need it to do (gaming, movies, internet) all seamlessly. It even handles multi-tasking well and it does not slow down even when I am running multiple applications at once. Although I saw a bit of a drop in performance when using Photoshop it is to be expected for a £50 chip.
Basically it's a great processor for everyday things and even gaming and if you're thinking of getting one then do. No other CPU can match this within its price bracket

Rated 5 out of 5 by brookheather Bargain performance for the price
I paired this with an MSI H81 motherboard and Windows 8.1 Pro - the PC booted in just a few seconds even though it was using a regular hard drive. Great performance for the price and stock cooler runs fairlly quietly. I could stream YouTube 1080p fine while only using about 30% cpu utilisation.
