For these applications, this Pentium processor works fine.
SeekingTraveler
This is a good processor to use if you need a budget PC build or are wanting to start an i series build.
Christopher Tichanuk
I think this might be one of Intel's best bargain processors.

I recently built a new home-office computer with the G2030 Pentium processor and the following:
- ASUS P8H77-M/CSM LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
- Corsair Obsidian Series 350D Performance Micro ATX Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel CC-9011029-WW - Black
- Corsair RM Series 650 Watt ATX/EPS 80PLUS Gold-Certified Power Supply - CP-9020054-NA RM650
- Corsair XMS3 4 GB 1333MHz PC3-10666 240-pin DDR3 Memory Kit for Core i3 i5 i7 and CMX4GX3M1A1333C9
- HGST Travelstar 2.5 Inch 500GB 7200 RPM SATA II 16 MB Cache Internal Hard Drive (0S02858)
- LG Electronics DVD
- No video card (I am using the on-board video)

As you can probably tell from this list, I was trying to build a very "cheap" computer. The total cost, not including the operating system, was 500 dollars. If I had used an i5 processor, it would have raised the price of this build by approximately 130 dollars. Obviously then, you can save a lot of money by purchasing the least expensive processor that will still get the job done.

This new computer is replacing a nine-year-old office computer.

This is a great Ivy Bridge CPU from a value standpoint, which was why I bought it. Compared with my i5-2500K (Sandy Bridge), overclocked in another system, there is a more noticeable performance hit than I would've thought, but the price was right.

The only cons I can really come up with are: the stock HSF is only okay (worse fan than on my i5 and no copper in the base) *and* this CPU in particular is a bit overcosted for what AMD's low-end system options are these days (honestly, very respectable APU performance now).

Just so you know, some games may struggle more with this CPU than you'd ordinarily think. For example, Skyrim seems to run happily enough, but most of my other FPS games tend to struggle a bit (or at least perform inconsistently, since a smaller buffer makes for more unpredictable performance "hitching" in gameplay). StarCraft II wasn't very close to 60fps either which made me kind of sad as well. I will inevitably have to upgrade to a i5-3570K or something of that sort to be fully happy with the PC it's in, but this is a good stopgap for now.

This is a very cost-effective alternative to a Core I3. The performance specs are very close to that of the I3-3210, which is considerably more expensive. This is actually overkill for my purpose. A Celeron would have done the job, but for the small difference in price, the kick in performance is well worth it. At the time I purchased it, it was $63. I think this might be one of Intel's best bargain processors.

My PC:

CPU: Intel BX80637G2030
Motherboard: ASRock B75M-DGS R2.0
Memory: Kingston KHX1600C9D3X2K2/4GX
HDD: Western Digital WD10EZEX
DVD-RW: Asus DRW-24B1S
USB 3.0 card reader: Rosewill RDCR-11003
PSU: EVGA 100-W1-0430-KR
Case fan: Cooler Master Blade Master 9
OS: Window 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Case: Re-purposed Sony Vaio VGC-RB44G

Running Prime95 while I tweaked the fan speed, I was able to reduce the CPU and case fans to their minimums and the CPU temp never gets over 46C/114F. Which tells me two things:

1) I have good airflow with this set up, and
2) Intel has a very efficient heat sink design.

The motherboard on my old AMD system had died, and I needed to get a desktop up and running for my work at home job, I decided that it was a good time to switch over to a system capable of housing an i5 or i7 processor. Money was tight however, so I bought this CPU as a stopgap solution, and honestly, I'm really surprised how well this little guy performs. It's not the best choice for gaming, but paired with a beefy graphics card I was able to play a majority of games without too many problems. Obviously CPU instinctive games won't like this processor, but I was pretty surprised what I could run. This is a good processor to use if you need a budget PC build or are wanting to start an i series build. The only issues I had was installing the heatsink, maye it was my board, but I had a little trouble getting the cooler to fit in the holes. Once I got it fitted, it was good to go. In short, this is a great budget CPU for those who want a basic PC for everyday tasks like internet and work, or for someone who is tired of their AMD build and wants to cross over to Intel.

I bought this chip for a budget gaming build and I am very impressed with the capabilities of this processor vs its price. It's on par with the 4th gen i3 yet it has a very modest price of about $56. Rated at a 6.9 in the windows experience index. Coupled with the right graphics card you can play the latest games at high specs/resolution without any problems. Loading screens may take longer compared to an i5/i7. Some CPU thirsty games may not like this chip but so far every game I've tested (Watch Dogs, Wolfenstein, Metro, Skyrim, Starcraft 2, Far Cry 3) all work just fine. Highly recommended if your building your own computer and you dont want to spend $200+ on a processor right away. This will certainly bridge the gap.
