can i get a link to what piledrive and bulldoze means please? (Newb on the terms of tech)
Bulldozer is last gen AMD microarchitecture.
Piledriver is the new one.
Bulldozer was considered to be one of the biggest fails in computers ever. Piledriver is actually decent
Bulldozer - X1XX (ex. 4100)
Piledriver - X3XX (ex. 6300)
Either get the Phenom II I listed above, 4170 or Piledriver.
Or go with Intel i3.
