Windows uses the FX processors just fine. It's not entirely optimized for them, but using them is no problem.

Which one will be better for gaming. I can afford both of them. I just want a CPU that will perform consistently. I probably won't OC either.

Dud, that's the one I just recommended to you. Yes, it's a good gaming CPU.

FX-4100 would be just fine and better than the althon. The althon I believe does not even have a L3 cache, where as the FX-4100 has a 6mb L3 Cache. Not too mention all FX processors' are unlocked and highly overclockable.

Also as Manu 11 stated benchmarks show that the i3 2100 (dual core) is also a great gaming option, but the cost of quality motherboard will go up.

why not go for phenom2x4? If you haven't bought the mobo yet go with 2500k.
