i am wanting to upgrade my cpu from my old athlon ii x2 and i was thinking about getting a phenom 965 or a bulldozer 4100. can anyone tell me which is better for big games like battlefield 3 and emulation? i have checked benchmarks and i get conflicting results in most of them.
also i will be needing to upgrade my motherboard for this upgrade i was thinking about getting

if anyone already has this motherboard could you tell me how it does with overclocking? i have a little more room in my budget if anyone could reccomend me a better mobo for OC (about 40 dollars more)

thanks in advance

I wouldn't go with that MB, it has a weak power handling section, meaning it's a weak overclocker. Be prepared to spend a little more and consider this. This is a strong overclocker:
GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

The Phenom II X4 965 is what I would recommend. Grab it while it's still available:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX
