  1. Gaming with no overclocking?

    FX-4100
  2. Lol yes without overclocking. I may in the future but i really just want to know which is better. Ive come across other posts about these two CPUs but everybody just suggests something else, or something more expensive. But these are my options.

    Gigabyte AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Motherboard and AMD FX-4100 3.60 GHz Quad Core AM3+ Unlocked CPU and Kingston HyperX 8GB Desktop Memory Kit and WD Blue 500GB Sata Desktop Hard Drive and Galaxy Bundle

    GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P DiabloTek Barebones Kit - GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-S2P Board, AMD Phenom II X6 1045T CPU, ADATA 8GB DDR3 RAM Kit, Seagate 1TB HDD, 24x DVDRW, DiabloTek Mid Tower Case, 450W Power Supply
  3. People keep saying the Phenom II X4 965 is better than both..........can somebody tell me if this is true?
  4. FX-4100
  5. Ok, so two say the 4100.....hmm...can somebody explain why everything ive read says the Fx-4100 isnt a "True" quad core??? I dont understand at all....but it doesnt sound good. I just dont want to be screwed with my purchase.
  6. Stay away from Gigabyte motherboards.
    FX 4100 is a true quad core, but I would go with the Phenom on this one.

    Yes the 965 BE is much better and the 1100T is even better but hard to find...

    All the best Brett :)

    The Phenom II X4 965 also gets my vote; for gaming purposes, it will outperform both CPU's.

    The FX-4100 isn't a true quad-core CPU due to how the architecture works. The FX-4100 has two Bulldozer modules with two Integer units. Basically, it's 2 'cores' with 4 'threads', something to compete with Intel's Hyper Threading technology per se.

  10. I thought i should add that i dont think my GPU is the greatest...its a Geforce GTS 450. Is this going to hold me back regardless or will it be ok?

    That card is still pretty decent by today's standards. What resolution will you be playing your games at? You should be able to play anything on High at a resolution of 1600x900 or below :)
