thx for the all the replies guys! and uh i thought the fx-4100 was really good for gaming(ref: http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?pid=793&cpu=FX-4100) a rating of 9 compared to the i3-2100's
7, and Schmuckley i have no problem going with ur build; although can u guys list some reasons why u seem to dislike the fx-4100 so much lol XD
The Fx4100 is more or less a dual core with "better" hyper threading. It also has a lower IPC than the older phenom II line of CPU's which means if both are at the same clock speed the FX will fall behind. The 960T is a true four core CPU that has a chance to unlock into a true six core.
Here's a conclusion to a very recent gaming review focused on CPU performance.
