Looking to upgrade my system for gaming and I read that right now, Intel has the best chips for gaming in the $125 and up range but I'd like to stick with AMD. Anyone know when some viable gaming chips will be out that beats Intel's in that price range?

? the phenom II 955 is less than $125 and its great for gaming. Its a better all round cpu than the i3 2100. Sure its a little behind in gaming performance but for most upcoming games that use 4 cores its on par or ahead of the i3's.

Considering that only a few game use 4 cores, the extra 2 / 4 cores in Bulldozer will not improve performance in any way for games.

However, they will be useful for programs that can use all those cores and for multi-tasking purposes.
