Phenom II X4 965 vs AMD Bulldozer FX-6100 vs FX-4170 Tags: CPUs Bulldozer Last response: February 5, 2013 10:01 AM in CPUs Share xHobbitx February 5, 2013 9:14:52 AM Hi all, I do alot of gaming on my PC and it needs an upgrade. I know that anything will give me a boost compared to what I have atm as it's been a while.. I have a budget, anything upto £200 max, for the whole bundle. I just want the best bang for my buck really and hope you guys can help.. I play mainly: World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 Natural Selection 2 CS:GO And every new MMO that comes out really.. I just want these to play seamlessly on a respectable graphics setting... Hopefully ultra with nice FPS! I have 2 screens, which I stream music from and web browse etc mid game. I'm looking for a bundle really as the 3 major components I want to upgrade are the:- MoBo CPU RAM I've found 3 on Amazon which I can't work out which will perform better for me.. FX-4170: http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Bulldozer-FX-4170-Quad-4-2G... FX-6100: http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-Bulldozer-FX-6100-M5A78L-M-... Phenom II: http://www.amazon.co.uk/ADMI-AMD-Phenom-3-4Ghz-PRE-ASSE... I currently have an NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250, which I wont be upgrading just yet.. Alot of threads ask the difference between them all, but most refer to recording using FRAPS. I just want to play them on max graphics seamlessly if I can is all. If there's anything else that I'm missing, like do I need 4gb instead of 8gb etc etc.. Thanks in advance and sorry for the essay!

I can't seem to find any bundles with them in though.. My main concern is that I don't want to buy separate units and they don't fit.. Or that they don't go very well together.. The closest I could find was this 6200 bundle:- http://www.amazon.co.uk/ADMI-AMD-Bulldozer-FX-6200-3-80... Do I wait for the Piledriver series and see what they have to offer? In which case am I back to square one, deciding which is better? Thanks m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
