If you can find one.... an AMD 1100T six core...
All the best Brett
They just vanished didn't they. The price shot up too, at least here in the UK.
Anyway to add to the discussion. I'll grade them by performance out of 10.
A 10 would be an overclocked to within an inch of its life 5GHz i7-2700k, but interestingly, even a 4 on this scale is enough for most games and should handle anything really, unless you're into super high res multi monitor gaming. As the basis of a 1080p gaming rig, I'd recommend that 960 and add a modest third party CPU cooler to give it a bit more grunt. If it unlocks to 6 cores, then that's a bonus and will take it from a humble 4 to a juicy 6.
This scale was sidesniped from cinebench multithreaded benchmark scores so it's a little skewed towards the more threads being used the better but however you look at it, the order of the processors is about right in terms of general performance too.
