the A8 would be the best on it's own, but option 3: the I3 2130 would be the best with a discrete graphics card

Yeah, unless you're a huge AMD, it's pretty obvious that Intel owns the market for performance oriented CPU's. The i3 2130 is a good starting choice, and paired with a Radeon 6870 or GTX 560 it would demolish the A8 and FX4100.

Agreed with the above.

Considering the price of the FX-4100 and the price of the i3-2120, I don't think you would give too much in terms of your GPU budget either.
