I need a cpu for $120 and under. My options are the fx-4100, fx-4130, f-4170, or the fx-6100 so which one should I get? Here is my build if anyone needs it http://pcpartpicker.com/p/x9jc

None of the Bulldozers for a new AMD rig.

FX 6300 all the way. Shave some money and get that instead @ $140. Downsize your case for that extra or save up a bit.

I can't really recommend any Bulldozers over the new Vishera procs.

FX 6100 can be had for $100 in some places. Overclock that bad boy to 4ghz and you have yourself a great performer for very little money. Thats good value.

Though, I agree that the extra money towards a FX6300 is well spent.

Don't get ANY of those, bulldozer was possibly the worst CPU series that AMD has ever made. FX 4300 or FX 6300 is the only thing I can recommend from AMD with your budget. FX 4300 is priced at 130$ and FX 6300 at 140$ which has the best value. Any of those you've choosen are terrible, just terrible. It wouldn't make any sense buying them.

If you're stuck with bulldozer, the 4170 is the best of a bad bunch.

Not true. The 6100 is a good value at around $110. It can be had cheap, offers great performance for the money, and unlocked multiplier. It outperforms just about anything under $125.

As a wise man said, no bad cpu's, only bad prices. And the 6100 is good at $110.
