Hello everyone.
I was thinking to get a pentium g4560 as it was really cheap compared to i3 7100.
Since currenlty g4560 is out of stock in the market .... I am left with an i3 7100.
Pentium g4560 is available online but then the price difference is very less.

Also g4560 has integrated HD 610 whereas 7100 has intel HD 630 which is comparatively faster.

Since i only play cs go it will have a small edge while playng with integrated gpu.
P.S. i will be buying a new gpu in next two months until then i will have to use integrated gpu.

So my questions are :
( 1 ) Shall i get an i3 7100 over g4560 just for cs go? (bcz the price difference is less)

( 2 ) Gaming on integrated gpu(intel hd) will harm my motherboard or processor by any chance?..or any sort if heating issues?(i have never done serious gaming on integrated gpus earlier)

(3) Please suggest me a cheap motherboard to pair these processor really cheap..but durable ..nothing fancy.

Also i will be pairing the processors later with 1050ti

Thanx in advance :)

They're basically the same; the i3, as you said, has a slightly stronger iGPU and 200 MHz better clockspeed.

If you can't get your hands on a G4560, the i3-7100 will make a fine substitute that you'll be just as happy, if not more, with. It's just slightly less bang-for-the-buck.

We built my dad an i3-6100 system last Christmas, and he's been beyond happy with it. Light gaming on an old R9 280 and basic office productivity tasks.
