I have already bought the graphics card but I was wondering if the fx 4100 had any effect on gaming because I've heard the fx series didn't do too well. I'm earning the ram, I'll be ordering soon. Phenom ii are discountinued so I can't get one of the 95watt phenom ii"s ( motherboard restrictions)
Interesting about the fx.. My motherboard that just came yesterday is the asrock n68c-gs fx. It only supports 95 watt CPUs. I still have the phenom ii coming to my house I have to return it because its 125w. I'll have to find the 955. I've looked everywhere though
No, the Phenom II x4 955 is a 125w part just like the Phenom x4 965. So you can't use it with your motherboard. Therefore, if you have to, then the FX 4100 will serve your needs for now. However, the FX 4300 or FX 6300 would be better performers.
