Hi I am thinking of upgrading my AMD X4 960T to a FX 4300 Quad core. Its about $120.00
Is it worth the upgrade in terms of increased power?

No. Apply the money towards an Intel changeover for significant performance gains or keep what you have.

AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 AM3+ 3.6GHZ Octocore
I am reluctant to change the Motherboard and Cpu and have to do a full re-install. Is the above CPU better for increased performance? Only $200.00

Not enough to justify the cost. Try overclocking first. Your old cpu is very good. What video card are you using?
