Christmas Upgrade Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So for Christmas I was looking at getting the FX4100 and a Asus Sabertooth AM3+ board. I currently have a Phenom II x4 955 and a Micro-ATX motherboard. I'm looking at getting a new CPU and Mobo but I have to keep price in mind.

I don't want to bash on BD, but I'm gonna give you the honest truth. That would be a downgrade, not an upgrade. If you want to upgrade then I suggest you either go Intel OR if you want to stick with AMD then upgrade to a Thuban.

Here is a comparison to show you why this would be a downgrade:

Yup that's what I meant.. I was saying if you got the board you suggested in the OP. It would work fine with your current CPU.
