Upgrade?

Currently I am using an Athlon X2 250 which while it does run most games it kinda on the low end. I am able to buy a FX-4100 for ~100 USD (coupon). Do you think this would be a reasonable upgrade? If not what are your thoughts? I already have an AM3+ motherboard so id like to stick with AMD.


Thanks

    IMO I'd go with a black edition x4 you can OC it and nothing i know of except some design programs utilize more than 4 cores anyway.
  2. No don't worth.Go with a Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition.

    Is that an AM2+ processor? I thought it was AM3

    It is an AM3 processor but it also works on AM3+ Motherboards.
