Should i upgrade my cpu?

from AMD athlon II 3x 455 ---> FX-4100 / 6300?

was just thinking of the 4100 cause of 4 cores and its rather cheap but when looking at for example cinebench benchmarks my current 3x 455 OC'd @ 3.6 ghz from 3.3 ( not by much bt still ) gets a score of 3.02 from multi rendering and 4100 gets 3.07 from multi rendering

or should i spend some extra cash & get 6300?

  1. Do not get fx4100.get fx 6300 which far better in multitasking and gaming.

    Love this review every month!

    Also love how my aging 2600K is still above anything AMD ;)
  3. oh it seems that the fx-4300 is 95W too, should i get that instead?
  4. oh and my MB has a core unlocker, would it be possible to get the 4300 --> 6 core or 6300 --> 8 core?
  5. the fx series does not have any hidden cores like the phenoms and athlons, its just built into am3+ boards as those cpus can be used on it Def the 6300, its only $10 more than the 4300 its just logical lol
  6. 6300
  7. Agree get the 6300.
  8. the 6300 is the best option...however,if i were you,i would try to sell what you have now and migrate towards intel,but this is regarding budget!
  9. +1 6300 or stick with what you have until you can buy an i5.
  10. Stay with AMD to keep competition alive.
