You will need to get a good mobo and cooler with that as well, but for the price the 4100 is not a bad choice at all. Go for it man! thumb.gif

Dude I would get a phenom ii 965. By the way newegg has the 965 for $115 if your a member, there is a $15 off code to use. The 965 should be faster.

I personally just ordered parts for 2 amd systems all based off the x4 965 for family members and the msi 990fxa-gd80 motherboard (open box $144 newegg), and 8GB corsair vengence 1600mhz memory, blue ones were $42 biggrin.gif

Hello

I can get 990FXA UD5 and the FX4100 for 200 €. I'm looking for a gaming chip that is fun to overclock. Is it worth getting?
I only need a mobo and cpu to get fraggin'.

Peace!

I'm thinking of getting a FX 4100 next week. It's cheaper than the P2 X4 970, which is the only one I can get. Can someone who has a FX-4100 give me some idea on how it does with gaming?
post #1317 of 8112
i chose to brought the fx-4100 because it's the starter cpu of the new line of cpu's, so if it don't end up being that good, i can still have the option to get a better fx or go back to the phenom's.

my gigabyte 990xa-ud3 and geil 1333 cl7 black dragon ram has come already, hopefully my fx-4100 comes today and 4 pin to 8 pin atx cable.

did i order the right mobo for stability and performance then overclocking?
i know i could of got better ram, but only had £230 to spend on upgrades and i have read that the geil's has bin able to get to 1866mhz.thumb.gif
has anyone had the some ram and mobo to comment on it? (or know anyone else to have a similar set up)
i do also have a cool it systems domino A.L.C liquid cooling system and a xigmatex midgard case which i'm going to be using in the new rig. what does you guys think of the new rig and have any comments on it.

and i'll post to all on the results of the new rig.

while writing this my 4 pin to 8pin cable came but no fx-4100, i so fill like this picture. http://xkcd.com/281/
