That would not be logical, it is clearly a better option for him to buy a $260 CPU to go with his $120 GPU.
Did I miss a memo? Someone thinks an FX 8150 is good for gaming?!?!?! If OCN had a poll, "Is FX-8150/6100 good value for gaming?" It should unanimously be a "NO" vote. As for the FX-4100/4170, I'm hoping they OC high enough to be strong contenders at the price. Personally between that and an i3-2100, I'd go FX-4100 for the OC.
