Both are $50 at Microcenter with a motherboard. Which would you pick for a budget build? Why?

Pentium G645 2.9GHz 2 cores,2 threads (Sandy Bridge) 65w
FX-4100 3.6GHz 4 cores, 2 modules (Bulldozer) 95w

I say pick the Pentium G645 because the FX-4100 is beaten in almost all games even by the Pentium G630 (2.7GHz).

I really dont think, it matters, when you have 200 or 160 fps in your benchmark! More important for newer stuff!


crysis 2 is a 2011 game and fx-4100 got 214 fps, i3-2100 184 fps and pentium g860 133 fps on low resolution
