I'm surprised that the i3-530 didn't get more of a look in in either of the first two systems. Perhaps that's due to less than brilliant overclocking that was achieved when it was reviewed, as well as the price.
That said, I really like the new format and I'm impressed that more discussion of alternatives is included. That makes for a far more rounded article in my view. Well done Bit-Tech!

When i run my 550 as a triple core, its 90% as fast as a full blown quad in games, so your not really losing anything if you don't get all 4 cores.
For an extra £15-20 over the 250, its more than worth it.
