Quick and maybe stupid question

Hi, I'm building a new computer rig and I was planning on buying the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition but the AMD FX-4100 Zambezi is on sale for less. So is the Fx-4100 better than the phenom II x4 BE??

  1. No but if it was the FX4170 or FX4300 they would be better performers.
  2. Best answer
    Phenom II is better, Can't you push it to an FX-6300?

  4. As said before, the Phenom II is better than the 4100; if that's what you're planning on getting, you can get it for $90 at NCIX instead of $100 at Newegg.

    I was actually thinking about getting that CPU but I felt I would be bottlenecking the cpu cause I plan on getting a HD 6870
