should i buy a pentium g4560 or wait for i3 8100 (coffee lake) ?

Posted 4 minutes ago · Original Poster
I have enough money to buy a Pentium g4560 rig but I could reach out for a i3 processor..... since coffeelake is around the corner ...there is no reason to buy kabylake i3 7100. 
Benefits--
pentium
1. best budget cpu and since I am not buying the GPU with the build as I have a VGA monitor
2.It will save my money to buy a gpu and monitor later. it will not stress on my wallet.
3. with i3 8100 I will have to wait long for my money to build up for the gpu and monitor 
4.Plus the release date is next month think but don't know specified date.... I am afraid intel g4560 might not be available at that time...if I think the price of  i3 8th gen is more than i expected in my country 
coffeelake(8100)
1.although g4560 best budget cpu it might not be a good option to buy it as intel offering quad cores at a cheap price (i3's price) and yes i3 8100 is the target .
 
So I am confused about which one should I go....?
 
In addition  
1. tell me the actual release date of coffee lake
2.what is the price of i3-8100 and 8300?
3.any information about coffee lake Pentium?

  1. I would not settle for anything less than a quad core going forward. There are already a handful of games that are 6 or 8 threaded, so quad is pretty much the bare minimum now if you want to play all games.

    Sure you'll have to wait longer to afford a good GPU, but most players keep their MB and CPU a long time, and the quad CPU will survive GPU upgrades down the road better. Often times spending more up front is the best investment long term.

    1. Intel are saying they expect to release laptop and desktop Coffee Lake chips by the holiday season end of this year, but no one knows yet if the desktop ones will be available retail box, or OEM only at first in prebuilt PCs.

    "...we expect to see the 8th generation Core in laptops and in desktops by the holidays season this year."

    2. There's only been speculation on Coffee Lake prices so far, no one knows for sure.

    3. I read an article stating,..."Coffee Lake Core i3 series will be using quad core, multi-threaded designs while the Pentium series will be using quad core, non multi-threaded SKUs"...

    I would avoid anything Pentium for gaming, they are not really built for it.

    Not sure what they're saying with that, it doesn't match their chart.

    If you're going to be using a GTX 1050 Ti or less, a Pentium G4560 would be just fine.

    thnx everyone for response..... I actually bought the g4560 no gpu at this moment..... although I think gtx 1050ti would be perfect match for this cpu and play for another 3-4 years (from high to mid-low settings for AAA games) I am not passionate for high graphics .............

    I will be buying gpu and monitor together............... someone can suggest some good lowest price monitor that will support the dsipaly output of this card....

    my build is
    -pentium 7th gen g4560 3.50 Ghz
    -gigabyte b250 d3h
    -2x4Gb corsair vengeance LPX 2400Mhz( went for 2x4 not 1x8 ..just to increase the gpu power of intel HD 610)
    -toshiba 1Tb HDD
    -Maxgreen casing and PSU 500W

    Take an advice buy a monitor with max resolution of 1360*768 . you'll get much more fps than a 1080p monitor

    What is the down side of downscaling the resolution and run a game at 1360x768 on a fullHD monitor?

    I think a monitor is something you are planning to use for more than 5 years. I would buy something like the BenQ GW2480, AOC I2490VXQ/BT or LG Electronics 24MP59G-P
