The Phenom II X4 955 BE is currently AMD's best gaming processor.

Sadly the 955 is the best...the 980 is just clocked higher which you can do yourself and use that cash saved for a beast cooler.

955BE (C3 not C2). Every other X4 BE essentially just has a higher multiplier and of course probably needs a little less voltage to stay within 125W at higher multipliers. Even so the 955 overclocks just as well and there is really no guarantee that you can overclock any given 980 BE faster than a 955BE. Just depends on your sample ^_^. Of course I have an older C2 955 so I'm limited to lower speeds without better cooling.

@Uther

currently for gaming an X6 CPU does not offer anything more than an X4 at the same clock speed (though the x6 has some applications outside of gaming). He's better off going with the X4 and the same cooler to get a higher overclock out of it.

1100t is better than the 1090t too.. lolol..Don't want to get flamed but the bulldozer will smoke Phenom II.

the 970's and up are the same processor but have been binned as they can take the higher clocks.......if your into overclocking id go for a higher up model.....if not get a 955

@ megamanx00

I was just giving my opinion, as its what i have, and i love it, it handles everything i throw at it and more when paired up with my gtx580.

Best how?
Best price/performance 955. Best 4 core 980. Best 6 core 1090T or 1100T, haven't a clue. Best 6 core price/performance 1055, from reports.
Best reasonable purchase, lowest priced 3 or 4 core under $100.
Basically the top ugrade is the 955, best sub $100" deal probably the Athlon II X3 450.
Spending more go I3 2100 or wait for Bulldozer.
For all that, my on sale purchases 635 and 925, YMMV.

So what now? do you go with the Zambezi core FX-8150 AMD Gaming CPU or stick with the 1100T? Cpubenchmark.net does put the FX-8150 above but I don't believe there using gaming benchmarks. This post suggests maybe the 1100T:

Buy a P II X4 now + an AM3+ mobo and upgrade later when improved versions of FX are released. That's what I'm doing.

I have the 1100t and the 1090t , paid $169.00 for each , both are equal , can not find a difference between them , both play any games my son throws at them . Both are easy to O C . I expect that these will last us a while , hope they write games that make use of the extra cores . For CA D and video encoding they are great .
When and if BD makes worthwhile gains I'll switch the one in the AMD3+ board .

Gaming is about equal, 8150 slightly faster in a few and 1100T slightly faster in others.

Personally I'd grab a Phenom II for gaming, no reason to spend another $100 for performance that will only be noticed in an extremely limited number of multi threaded apps, and even there Phenom II has better price/performance.

At what resolution?
All a person got to do is make sure your on 1080p then putting a rig together is not such a expensive business

3fps difference between the X4 965 and 2600k which was clocked at 4GHZ
