  1. I would say 955. The 955 is 4 real cores while the FX-4100 is 2 modules that each have about 180% of dual core performance so not quite a quad in performance.

    Plus if the FX-8150 barley outpaces the Phenom II X6, I doubt the FX-4100 would outpace the 955 at all.
  2. Yep go for the 955, buy a Hyper 212 plus cooler so you can OC the CPU easily and partner it with this graphics card....

    You will have yourself a pretty decent mid range gaming machine.
