I will be building a custom gaming computer later this year on a budget.
The FX 4100 is very tempting as it is so cheap. However, I am wondering on people's opinion on its performance from gaming. I have gotten mixed opinions in the past. Some say it is utterly terrible, and some say it's better than people say because they're just bias. I have watched videos of people using it on YouTube (i.e. playing BF3 Ultra settings) and it seems fine?
Also, would this CPU bottleneck a GTX 570 or higher graphics card? And if so, by how much?
I would appreciate also, some links to benchies.
Please, no Intel bias (***I*** am ***NOT*** biased toward any brand, I just want the best bang for the buck), and no uneducated answers; answers ***ONLY*** from people who know what they're talking about would be appreciated : P.

Yes it will bottleneck, it'd be a better option by picking up an i3-2100 or Phenom 965BE.
(Pretty much everything above a 560ti/7850 will be bottlenecked by the 4100)
