It doesn't really matter when your running a single GTX560.

I'd rather have the 1045t and overclock it though.

I'd say OC the FX4100. It will surpass the 1045T by mere clock speeds if you do it right, for games at least.

Go to the UEFI/BIOS and find the multiplier settings. Play with that number until you find an stable point (no blue screens or restarts). Start from the default number and then go by 0.5 jumps.
