Which one of these CPU's is the best for gaming?

#1: AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)
#2: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz
#3: AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz

Not really sure which one is better for gaming... they all get really good reviews. Just need some fellow gamer's to give me there opinions and experiences with these CPU's.

Also which one would run best with this MOBO and GPU?

MOBO: ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX AM3+

GPU: EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16

More about which gaming
  1. FX-4300 >= PIIX4 965BE > FX-4100 > AIIX4 640

    yeah that first one wasn't included in your list, but i thought i'd let you know anyway.
  2. 965be. Overclocks easily and none of the random compatibility issues with games as the fx series has
  3. Would get the 965 but the 4300s aren't bad now
  4. #2: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GH is best
  5. If u are aiming for 4300 make sure the board is support it out of box.. if not u might need to do bios update or wait for a while...

    Else I would like to go with 965be ...

    there a little concern about that board... (do not know if it a good O.C. board)
  6. FX 4100 > 965 BE

    The 4100 is on sale too and I would totally grab it as it is cheaper than the 965
