For gaming the faster X4 will win over the slower X6! In all reality the upgrade is not going to be much over your current Athlon X4 . Here with similar CPU's little faster http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/188?vs=147
nice thanks for the link.
Anyways after looking at the comparisons and reading the reviews on 960t further I have decided I am going to get the 960t since I dont really care much about photoshop, how slow videos encode etc. What matters to me atm is the FPS. Also L3 cache is one of the reasons I wanted to upgrade.
Thanks for your thoughts.
