  1. I assume you already know but only the 750K will go in that board
  2. Yes i know, I Will switch the Mobo accordingly
  3. The athlon 750k performs very slightly worse than the phenom (mostly due to the lack of L3 cache).
    The Pentium does beat the amd CPU's in single threaded applications but loses in pretty much any program that uses 4 cores (which most cpu intensive games do).
    Also the with the phenom you get a am3+ socket motherboard which will allow you to upgrade to steamroller if you want to in the future.
  4. Go for Athlon X4 750k

    the 750k would be better but that motherboard sucks and is a dead end in upgrading when streamroller is released on the apu line i would assume they will release a chip without a built in apu make sure your motherboard is a a88x series fm2 plus for future upgrading
