Budget Processors Run the Gauntlet for your Amusement

Most people don’t need much computing power but the increasingly faster high end CPUs of today have loaned their cores, sans some cache, to the budget models. Fortunately for under $100 you can find some powerful processors regardless of platform you choose. AMD has some triple core value chips to get their point across while Intel thinks you’ll be fine with some modified LGA775 chips and low end Core i3 based dual-core chips. It’s difficult to gauge which will offer the best speed in your typical application usage but it sure is fun finding out now isn’t it?
