  1. Can you get the newer Piledrivers? (8320, etc.) the Piledriver's are much better than the bulldozers if that's your only choice.
  2. FX-6300 is better than all of those for gaming.

    If not overclocking whatsoever. *gets ready to seethe in anger*, the 4100, only, and ONLY because it has the highest clock speed out of all of them. The 8120 is certainly the better choice if you bumped it up to 3.6GHZ, which is a very minor overclock given their potential clock rates, but you can do this with the stock fan, since its the stock setting of the 8150s, and they all ship with the same CPU cooler.

    Why would you recommend the 4100 over the 4300 and even better, the 6300?

    because i said I can only choice between fx 4100 , 6100 and 8120
  6. If you can only choose between them... Fine, then FX-4100 for non-overclocking and FX-8120 for overclocking.

    Would you mind saying why those are your only choices?

    Because, I actually read what the OP wrote. You know me better than to think I wouldn't recommend the 4300 over the 4100 if given the option.

    I'll take hes in another country where computer parts selections aren't as varied for $200 Alex. Bonus points, I'm gonna go with hes from India. *crosses fingers*

  10. I would grab that 8120 and push it up to 3.6GHZ and call it a day.
