Buying parts for my first build today and I am honestly torn. So I'm coming here for help yet again.

So I have 3 choices for a cpu, and any one of them will cost me exactly 100 dollars, regardless of their online price. So. Should I get the
1. fx 6200 3.8ghz
2. phenom ii x4 965 3.4ghz
OR
3. phenom ii x6 1045t? 2.7gh

Here is what I will be doing with whichever cpu I go with:
1. Gaming (Battlefield 3 multiplayer)
2. Recording games with fraps (games like BF3)
3. Rendering videos.
4. While gaming and recording, I will probably also be on Skype and/or have itunes playing music.

So, keeping in mind that either of these 3 cpus will only be 100 dollars out of my pocket, which should I get?

I will not be overclocking.

Straight forward witht he FX 6200 - because it is the fastest clocked and you will not be overclocking!

I agree with moricon. Since your not going to play with settings trying to clock it you shouldn't even have to research which one is most stable.. get the fastest one for your dollar which would be the FX 6200 @ 3.8ghz

Alright thanks a lot! Everyone has been telling me to go with either of the phenoms because "better architecture" or "better overclocking" and "faster core performance", hence my uneasiness....I feel like the fx 6100 might have been a bust and so even its higher clocked big brother, the 6200, undeservingly gets a lot of flak....

im not an AMD person, but for the price of that CPU and the specs it has, i would say just get it. at the end of the day u can always upgrade in the future if ur needs increase but you should be fine, and after all it is only $100
