Good

The G2030 works great for browsing the web and basic text editing, if you want to play games it can surprisingly handle quite a few older games.

This helps me find which processor is the best for price


Poor

better save up and go for used i5 3470


Good

I have plan to upgrade next year with all new and ddr5-ram maybe.


Good

Overall is a good processor for basic computing and editing, however it needs a dedicated GPU to fully utilize it's potential, I'd recommend it if you're on a budget
