i5 > faildozer

The build the OP made will be fine as SC2 is extremely CPU dependent in 1v1.

I doubt that the FX-4100 would not be able to handle SC2.

Just because BD wont work as well on the more intensive games doesnt mean that it wont do good on the less intensive games. All of us who give advice on the boards know that i5 can beat the crap out of AMD any day of the week on most games. I advise you to look more into the BD and stop being band wagoner. There hasnt been a review out of the 4100 yet, that also means that you cant count it out of the race even though the 8 core flopped.

There was a review of the FX-8100 with two modules disable to get an FX-4100. It did worse than phenom.

Still its an 8100 being used to get a "standard" of what the 4100 may possibly look like there could still be difference when using a true FX-4100

Little difference price between CPU+Mobo+memory from AMD and INTEL.
Saying this I would stick with the i5 cause it already proved that's more than capable force in gaming area. (since we lack FX-4100 benchmarks)

Only 4GB RAM is needed. use the extra $20 for an i5 2500k and overclock it for fluid smooth gameplay.
