Which processor/mobo combo will give me the most bang for the buck?
1.fx-4100/(insert mobo)
2.i3-2100/(insert mobo)
3. phenom x4 965/(insert mobo) 960T
Can someone explain what single-threaded tasks and multi-threaded tasks are and what they have to do with gaming in bf3?

um 960T ..yeah..best option..best chip AMD's ever made..truthfully i like it better than the 2500k @ 4.8
mobo..i like sabertooth...ch5..m4a89td pro..m4n98td pro
unfortunately..i have the m4a89Gtd pro..but it's all good biggrin.gif


Take the clock speed of an fx4100 over 4.6..and it's a turd..you can overclock a turd..but this particular turd doesn't scale well :lachen.gif:
960T @ 4.2>fx4100 @ 4.6..anyone wanna compare? (atm i have a 960T)
i bet..i win in every benchmark available
