As the thread indicates, I just want to know whether the AMD FX-4100(Bulldozer) processor is better than the Intel Core i3 540(Clarkdale) processor. Also, will this FX-4100 processor perform better than the AMD A8 3850?

like the guy above me said the FX 4100 will outperform the Intel Core i3 540.The third one however isnt just a processor.Its an APU.That means its got a graphics card in it.The FX 4100 will outperform it, but if youve got no discrete graphics card the A8 3850 might be the better option.

Perform better at what??

i3-540 is obsolete socket, why are you comparing that to new cpu's?

You should be comparing i3-2100 to FX4100. In gaming it's no contest, the i3 flat out destroys the 4100/6100. In fact the Pentium G destroys the 4100/6100.
