thank you for the input
.what is special about piledriver series cpu?
are they(amd) phasing out bulldozers ?
I might wait if piledriver seems to have a better option.
phenom X4 965 is out of budget & non availability
Piledriver is just the evolution of Bulldozer, but it should be 10-15% faster.
I don't think AMD is stopping production of Bulldozer (at least not immediately after Piledriver is released), but when AMD's previous generation beats it and Piledriver is so close, it just doesn't make any sense to buy a Bulldozer CPU right now.
And the 965's are the exact same price as the 4100 over here in the US (at Newegg), and cheaper, of course the the 6100, and it seems to be the best Phenom II that's still easily available here.
