965 is a true quad core cpu, the 4100 is a dual module cpu, while similar in naming, technially the 4100 is missing a couple of FPU parts that the 965 has.

965 is the only choice if you can still get one.

965 black edition is the way to go if you can find one. barring that i would sugest a 960T next.

You'll be very lucky if you can find one.

I was also confused between phenom and fx but i purchased FX 4100 and currently using it right now with AMD Radeon 6850 without overclocking. I can play Battlefield 3, NFS The run and other games in ultra settings without any problem.

My specs are:
CPU: AMD FX 4100
RAM: 8GB
GPU: AMD Radeon 6850
PSU: 600w

I think, AMD FX are not that bad. at least for me.

965 is too old
FX-4100 is overclocker friendly

It may be old but it's got higher IPC and does better in games than FX. Even when overclocking you need 4.5Ghz+ on an FX to match the performance of Phenom II @ 4.0Ghz. Stock speeds the 965 is faster, overclocking included their about even given their typical overclock range.

I was running similar, Same Card, more memory and 6850 and play Battlefield 3 also without issues.

its a good chip that's deffo worth looking at.
