Which Fx Series Should I Get?

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
I plan on tomorrow, replacing my AMD ATHLON with one of the FX series Cpu's. Im not looking for the most expensive one either. I would like to know which one is best for the money, and which one outperforms my current cpu the most, and which version of the FX series are unlocked, although im pretty sure the ones with the "K" are the ones unlocked. I plan on getting something from the 4000-6000 series.(Six core and 4 core).

Once again...Which is better?

None. If you want AMD the Phenom II's are better than the FX's. If not then the 2500K is the best for gaming.

Just go intel. Amd isnt doing well in the CPU market. 2500k can beat the fx8150 in many cases. Why pay more to get less.

Alright, It sounds like a plan. After I read some more about it, and its performance vs the Athlons.
