if you are in the us pick up a 960T, about 70% unlock to a 6 core for only $125. what price are you looking at?

You have to overclock a 4100 to 4.3 to be equal to a 955. The FX is more fun to overclock but if you want plug and play I'd get the 955. thumb.gif

It kinda is. Its performance is similar to a Phenom II X3, sometimes better. I personally view it as a dual core with multi threading, especially looking at how processors with a similar core config (late SUN processors) were labeled as such. Many people do not share this view though.

my apologies, but as you have no location set I can only make a recommendation about what I know. I do realize this is a global forum. If you included the prices you are looking at and where you are ordering or buying from I'm sure someone could make a better recommendation. In my opinion the 960T is a better value than either of those CPUs.
