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.
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.
