hi first blog . im having a problem a bought the fx4100 acouple of months ago. was kind of disappointed of the performance. i have it overclocked to 4.5ghz on aftermarket cooler.fps on some games suck. i been thinking of buying a fx8350 or crossfire my hd6770. im at a crossroad. what should i do?
@4.5Ghz that 4100 is as fast as a Phenom II @ 4.0Ghz which is plenty for any game out there. Your problem is that the 6770 is really nothing special when it comes to gaming if you want better frames you need to upgrade that GPU, the 7850 is a great recommendation.
The bigger peformance issue here is not the FX4100 it is your HD6770, which is for all intents and purposes lower end. Instead of buying a new CPU and invariably a motherboard as the 870 will not take the FX8350's TPD's just buy a better GPU, say a HD7850 or 7870GE
but why you bought fx-4100 in the first place ? see now you are suffering the wrath of the mighty bulldozer
