  1. this is a no brainer, simply because its more powerful AND cheaper

    the phenom II x4 980 black.
  2. Meh. If you have the budget to go to $170, pick up an i5 of some sort. You'll see performance increases over the 980, and it's not much more expensive (for the 2400) than the FX 6200. You'll need to switch your motherboard too, but there's good offerings at the same price on the intel side.
  3. If you are going to stay with AMD the Phenom II X4 980 BE is the better processor.
  4. Im going to stay AMD so intel is out of the question
