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?

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

oh and my MB has a core unlocker, would it be possible to get the 4300 --> 6 core or 6300 --> 8 core?

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

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!
