This is good but for 10 dollars more i would go with the fx-6300


6100 is Bulldozer

6300 is Vishera

6300 has better performance per clock. Go with it hands down.

bulldozer architecture doesn't have good rep for gaming. in my opinion definitely worth the money.

If you popcorns can afford 6300, then get that instead. I agree with tenacious on this one. I'm just trying to squeeze his budget to fit the $800+tax mark so I chose the 6100
