I am looking to upgrade my processor (AMD Phenom x3 8400). I have been looking at two processor the AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition, and the AMD Phenom II x6 1045T. I plan on using it for gaming with 2gb DDR2 ram and a GIGABYTE GeForce 550 ti OC video card, and I want to get a rather high frame rate on high and ultra setting. I was wondering, which processor would be better? Now I'm rather new to computer hardware and such, and I was conflicted because, the one has a higher clock (3.4 Ghz) and an unlocked multiplier, but the other has more cores and is cheaper. Which one would be better for what I want?

Thank you,
Alexander

The faster X4 is going to do better in gaming, just make sure your motherboard supports it!

The 1045T is a good upgrade from your X3!
