AMD Phenom ii x4 965 black or amd fx 4100 black?

Which one is better for gaming? I'm aiming to build a budget gaming rig and I'm not sure which to use. I've heard people swear by both of them so I'm wondering which one of them is the best and why?

  1. 965 is a true quad core, 4100 is a dual module, pseudo quad core (80%) cpu.

  3. Okay, thank you!
  4. +1 965
  5. What are you doing with this computer? Either way I would probably go with the 965. The 965 is a true quad core CPU and in most cases will out perform the Bulldozer especially in gaming.
  6. Hi :)

    Get the 1100T ...

    All the best Brett :)
  7. I have a AMD Phenom ii X2 555 unlocked to quad. And it plays Skyrim on max setting just fine. So i would buy the 965
