Well that was kind of my whole point. Get a 2500k or don't upgrade because it would seem ridiculous to waste $170 on a 8120 with ZERO performance increase as opposed to $270 to upgrade to sandy bridge.

If the OP cannot get a 2500k, then he really isn't upgrading anything. PII have shown to be the same or BETTER than bulldozer when it comes to gaming. And there isn't going to be any bulldozer chip beating a PII that is at 4.16ghz unless it is clocked crazy high in which the power consumption would be through the roof.

If the OP doesn't need a 2500k then he 110% does/should not "upgrade" to bulldozer at all.

What made you so mad? I never tried to force my choice on anyone you are just angry for no reason. You seem like a complete fanboy yourself as you are opposed to others viewpoints. I personally buy whatever is an upgrade/best at the moment in time I decide to update my components, I do not stick with a company to be a fanboy like you do.

I am just pointing out that if the OP does not get a 2500k he is not actually upgrading, he would just be sidegrading. Especially since his current cpu is at 4.16ghz the OP has NO reason to get bulldozer if he is mainly gaming. I'm just trying to help the OP not waste his money on useless things. You however seem to want him to waste his money on useless new hardware that will not benefit him in any way.

So if the OP doesn't want to jump ship to intel, then he should keep what he has.

hello,
please read this thread Epic FX vs Phenom II Grudge Match as it shows that the fx 8xxx are near 50% better than a 965.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1251047/epic-fx-vs-phenom-ii-grudge-match-amd-slug-it-out-orama-2012

the six core P II's are still better than an fx,but they havent got a 12 core fx to compete with it.

Calm down. He also advised the OP to stay with his chip now if his main concern was just gaming, as the BD chip wouldn't likely yield much improvements in 85%+ of normal activities.

He then pointed out a similar priced but more expensive alternative that is quite popular and a solid choice. Basically, why spend $170 for next to no difference when he can spend a little more and get a noticeable increase. (He'd have to buy a new board, but could sell his old one, the upgrade cost would not be that high)

I think the whole AMD/Intel side thing gets in the way sometimes. He clearly wasn't being "AMD suck bro, get Intels 4 POWAR" heh

But I have to agree, being a strong AMD fan who won't be buying Intel, if he's looking for a gaming upgrade he should stick with what he has for AMD or change to Intel if he wants more now.

Alternatively, depending on his local market, he may be able to sell his 965 and buy a 960T if there is almost no cost or you lose out about $10-$15. The IMC upgrade and possible 5 or 6 core would be fine and provide a little extra umph at times.

But that can be hit or miss, so you might want to hold onto your cash and see what Piledriver brings. Are you being bottlenecked? Do you need/want to upgrade badly, or just on a whim? Do you want to stay with AMD or go Intel, or does this even factor to you? Theres a lot of things I don't know personally, but I gave you my 2 cents of ramble.

yes,your right,but there are different gpu involed.
and if your going intel,a 2600k or ib equivalentor above would be a sound choice as it can disable its ht and be a 2500k if you want and still has 8 threads for later.
i had this choice and found the fx was half the price of the 2600k.

It's 4 modules with 2 integer units, and 1 fpu which should technically be called how it is.
