More about what makes
  1. Well, can you return it for purchase price?

    Otherwise, fx has a different implementation than Phenom, Windows OSs' aren't optimized for it, and neither are many programs. (I think windows 8 is supposed to do better with it, but that is a rumor)

    Otherwise, I've heard that your older Phenom is as good as or better than fx 4100 in those types of things. (gameing/single thread performance) At least in Windows, I've also heard bulldozer works better on Linux than Windows. :/

    Buyers remorse sucks. btw FX-4100 is supposed to be the budget high performance cpu. The best one is higher priced and probably does better than phenom. At least oc'd it will.


    Oh and fyi upgrading your graphics card might have had a much better improvement, than just your cpu. I don't know your system though, so maybe not.
  2. If you want to stick by AMD, maybe I'd return your 4100 and get a 4170, or wait until December and get the 4350. I've heard that the 8 core CPU's aren't much better than the 4 core ones.
  3. IPC....

    Deneb clock per clock, and core per core, is faster than Zambezi.

    My Graphics Card is a Nvidia 660TI, I only needed to upgrade my CPU.

    And also I would like to return my CPU but that would leave me CPUless as my 965 is blown up, and also that store sucks and that's the best they had for AMD.... I just don't want to completly change my motherboard to get an Intel right now :/
  5. xO if you cpu is blown up there isn't much else to say.. Bad day :(

    Search around? Another deneb would be great.

    I guess you will have to lower some settings to make guild wars playable until you get a better cpu, or OC that one till it works fine. (I think that can be done with that cpu)

    On the topic of online buying:

    Well I can use my debit/credit card to pay on newegg, it takes my money from my bank account. But acts like a credit card. (I can use it as if it was a credit card)

    Can you get something like that from you bank? ( for newegg) You could try paypal. I wouldn't give paypal my bank account numbers though.. Since I can always change the numbers on my card that is used for Paypal. (when I don't want some weird website knowing my numbers)

    ^ what this guy said

    Bulldozer was not an improvement over Deneb, it was more of a lateral shift sideways. It also universally sucks for gaming.
  7. The FX (Bulldozer) series is merely a side-grade to Phenom II. There are a few specific areas where FX CPUs perform better than Phenom II like video encoding, 3D rendering and file compression. However, in games the performance difference is very small.

    If possible, return the FX CPU and wait for PileDriver benchmarks to determine how much of an improvement it is over Phenom II before deciding to buy it.
