This is a single core silicon and very old architecture which is hard to recommend even if you are on a tight budget.
Better go for amd or put in a 1000 bucks more and get the sandy bridge G620 which is somewhat similar to i3 2xxx series

Waste Product from Intel
When it comes to performance, its no where near to AMD sempron. Its going to be waste of money, if u expect this processor to play HD videos. Not recommended. you can view the benchmark results overclock,com and cpu-world,com. Its not value for money.
