In my main thread on how to build a video editing rig that can also do well with gaming, I'm urged to consider the fx 6300 - and assured that rumors of these CPU's having issues with gaming engines are unfounded.

I'm keen on getting a 965 Black Ed because it's $40.- less than the 6300.

But now I saw a 6100 for only $20.- more.

I can accept a $20.- premium for a 6 core vs the 965 so my video apps will work faster, but I'm seriously wondering: what's the difference aside from a little speed between 610 and 6300?

The difference is efficiency. The hardware is similar...but the FX 6300 has a more efficient decoder, uses the cores more efficiently, and has improved single threaded performance.

If it's worth considering a FX6100 the FX6300 should be a no brainer for $20 more. If the difference was a lot of money, I would say the FX6100 would get you by...but the FX6300 is a 15% improvement in the PC world, that's alot of improvement for $20.

The FX-6300 uses the newer core which is more efficient and it is a 3.5Ghz with a turbo speed of 4.1Ghz. If there is a choice between it and the FX-6100 which is a 3.3 with a turbo at 3.6 GHz (more than 3 cores), 3.9 GHz (3 cores or less). Get the 6300 hands down. I recommend getting the newest versions most of the time. If you want a quad core you could look for a FX-4170 that's a 4.2 GHz straight out of the box. Just be sure you motherboard will handle these AM3+ models before you buy.
