The Phenom II X4 is better.

The FX 4xxx series is really a replacement for the Phenom II X2 and X3. The FX 6xxx series replaces the Phenom II X4 and the FX 8xxx series replaces the Phenom II X6. This is in general of course. Sometimes the FP unit in the FX series is limiting and it performs closer to half its core count vs PII, other times it performs about right at its core count vs PII when the application is integer heavy and doesn't branch much.

i3? Hahaha, only in gaming.

i3 is not listed here. And yes Phenom II x4 955 BE is better than FX-4100.

The Phenom II x4 is better. Bulldozer was an embarrassment, and I wouldn't recommend any chip based on it for any build. The Phenom IIs are still great budget chips if you want a dirt cheap gaming system.

Basically if you plan on spending more than $100 on a CPU, you want Intel in my opinion. Otherwise the Phenom IIs are still the best value around.

Unless you have already got the processor go Intel Sandybridge / Ivybridge

Take a look at the 960T, its an AMD chip, its a 4 core Thurban chip which is a 6 core chip usually some people have reported success with unlocking the extra 2 cores and reviews I have seen are favourable as far as overclocking is concerned.
its stock clock is 3GHz.

The 960t is also 95w tdp, one thing people usually dont mention. As a former 955 and 555 owner, makes a HUGE difference in heat. Even unlocked to 6 cores and OC'd its still much cooler than my 955.

As for gaming applications TH put the overclocked Bulldozer FX 4100/4170 at the top of the gaming CPU hierarchy chart for AMD

why is this in the graphics section? I doubt either can output decent graphics by themselves.

I like the 955
