No the last TRUE amd 4 cores were the phenoms from amd This has 2 cores and 2 moduls,Like intels hyperthreading

ok thanks ! thats what i was told . so i wanted to be sure ! this was the only way i could be ! can you help me with a amd setup ? i want to game at ultra settings ! but 6 cores seems be over kill !

Do not go for the old Bulldozer models e.g. Any FX processor that has *1** in it

Go for the 4300>6300>8320-8350

It's kinda both. Bulldozer modules have 2 "integer clusters" each, and they stack them up to make processors, 2 for 4xxx, 3 for 6xxx and 4 for 8xxx series. In that sense, a 4100 has 4 distinct processing cores, as it has 4 physical processing elements within its two modules. Each module however, has shared resources which means that you don't necessarily get the same level of performance as you would from a "true" quad core. It wouldn't really be fair to call it a dual core though either.

Intels Hyperthreading works on each core in turn, to effectively use up any leftover space in each processing cycle. It's a very different system. Even in an i7, you only ever have 4 physical cores but you get 8 "opportunities" per cycle to process.

so what do you think ? 4300 with what board ? i've had alot of luck with gigabyte boards ! but im always willing to listen !

I suggest add $10 more and get fx 6300
instead of 4300.

I would say go for my board, unless somebody can suggest a better one maybe? The 970 extreme 3.

Pretty cheap and is solid. Good overclocker too.
