I wouldn't take the Phenom, it's quite old and you could buy it cheaper on ebay.
I'd recommend you to take eigher the FX-4100 (quad core) or the FX-6100 (hexa-core), they don't cost much more but you'll be much more pleased with them.

fx 4100 and fx 6100 are even worse then phenom 965.

Oh sorry, my bad. I meant the 4300 and 6300, of course I wouldn't recommend the Bulldozer CPUs to anyone ;)
