Nice overclock there, 4.7 on the super-pentium :o

Re: G4 (Gaming Cubed)

I'm kind of disappointed I had to go to Intel, as I've always built AMD based rigs.  However, due to the needs for this build to have great IPC and still have a price to performance ratio that's easy on the wallet I could not ignore the G3258. 

And since emulators are single threaded programs, this is the perfect chip to play old console games...

Still waiting patiently for ZEN my friend....
