  1. What do you have?
  2. its the best gaming cpu AMD has to offer
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106-5.html

    the article doesnt "recommend upgrading your CPU unless the potential replacement is at least three tiers higher"
  3. Depends how much you want to pay, and what are your specs. The FX4100 at elast in Europe is becoming really cheap.
  4. I have the phenom II x6 1045t

    I guess it depends how much you can get for your x6. It's not an upgrade worth $150. Phenoms are generally better gaming processors than FX Cpu's .
