  1. The difference in performance is very small. So keep your Core 2 quad or upgrade to something better like the FX 6300.
  2. The FX4130 is slightly better but you'll need a new mobo. It's not worth the switch.

    If you are looking at an upgrade, forget AMD. Period. They don't offer anything, in 2014, much better than Intel's Core 2 Quads from 2008.

    Get an Intel i5, or even i3 based system. Pair it with a cheap $50 H81 motherboard, buy some DDR3 RAM, reinstall Windows, and you just majorly upgraded your system. That's what i'd do.

    Hope that helps!

    Yeah that's a good deal, but don't expect a whole lot of performance out of it.

    i edited my question sorry i didnt give my full question but i thought i wouldn't enter the subject,if you could look at the edit that would be really helpful
  7. FX 4130 is $80-100 new. 16GB of ram is $100-120 and 2TB HDD is $80. You still have to add cost of mobo, case and psu.

    i saw with E3-1230V2 cpu 149$ is it better,16BG ram 2TB?
  9. Is this to be just a file server?

    Oh yeah. The E3-1230v2 is MILES beyond the FX-4130. That CPU is essentially an Ivy Bridge i7.
  11. The 1230v2 is an awesome chip.
  12. The FX is about 2% better... which may not seem much of a difference, but you'll have to add other components and consider old against new technology, and new most always wins.

    Find the Passmark CPU Mark number to compare CPUs

    using for a little decoding videos and uploading to upload servers thats why dedicated servers,in my country there is no symmetrical speed and good speed and maybe a website
  15. Then go with the Xeon for sure. You will need a dedicated GPU to go with it, but any PCI-E gpu will work for that.
