...we paired the Pentium G3220 with a mid-range Gigabyte GeForce GTX 750 Ti WindForce graphics card that is readily available for around £100. We've listed the 1080p performance of the G3220, G3258 (both stock and overclocked) and compared them against the enthusiasts' favourite, the Core i7-4770K.
The overclocked chip does a very good impression of a Core i7-4770K - there's very little difference in real-world games run at 1080p. Sometimes numbers can be misleading, but the game(s) felt smooth and fluid to play. We'd challenge anyone to tell the difference between the overclocked Pentium G3258 and the 5x dearer Core i7-4770K in these games.
Really, the standard chip is good enough for 1080p gaming.
