Looks like the i3 3220 would be a better buy now, since you can get one in the UK for £40 from CeX...
4130 is better
Lucy
The 4th generation Haswell should consume less power than its 3rd generation but the article above says something different
for price/performance relation what is better a i3 3220 with lga 1155 or a i3 4120 with lga 1150
