You're gonna get basically the same answer I gave you in the other thread from almost anyone else here, lol (unless they're fanboy's, lol).

Disregard the 6100, and go with the 965 or 2120.

Like I also said in the other thread, the 2120 would be better for gaming than a stock speed 965, but an OC to the 965 will even it up.

Honestly, out of the 3, I'd go with the 965 (because it's a quad core and in games like BF3, that's beneficial). The 6100 is a faux "6 core" with 6 integer cores, but only 3 execution units. That, combined with the slow architecture, makes it not worth considering.

Eh, I don't really mind answering these, and since I'm nearly at the "Expert" level, all the posts I can make are good at this point. :lol:

You're welcome, and if you want to OC, you'll need an aftermarket cooler, yes. OC'ing a Black Edition CPU is relatively easy, though. There's a good guide in the Overclocking section on that if you need help figuring it out. :) 

Edit: Really, I'd just go ahead and get an aftermarket cooler to begin with, since it'll be easier to install it when you first build than it will be later.

Lol, Phenom II> i3 any day. As to the question of whether to overclock or not. My logic is, overclocking is one of the big advantages of building your own computer vs buying a pre-built. While there are plenty of other advantages to building your own, I think overclocking is a big one, so take advantage of it. Stock to stock the i3 does indeed have stronger cores, but overclocked a Phenom II can match the i3 in single core performance and heavily outgun it in 4 threaded performance.
