Just wondering if i should go with a FX4170 or a 6100.Those are the only two that fit into my price range, I have been doing a lot of research and can't really make up my mind so i thought I would ask my fellow ROG members.

FX4170 is more good for game!

Or could pay a bit more and go for the 8 core 🙂 i have the 8 core and it never lets me down :cool:
Reviews say that the fx series are only good for servers and high load computers.
Im not a intel fan boy or anything i have a fx 8120 my self the 8 core but the fx does lag some times....

Are you sure about that I couldn't find much on the 4170's.

The FX run to hot for my tastes.

I would go for the X6 1090T Black Edition.

I did notice that when i was doing my research, I also confirmed that the fx4XXX are not really 4 core processor. So at the moment I decided on a AMD Phenom II X4 965 that Im going to over clock. Sounds good to anyone?

If you want to play games with decent FPS, FX is no better than Phenom II X6.

Amen.

Buy this and hold your horses until AMD releases new ones.

So what would you guys recommend for gaming?The 8 cores seems like over kill and most games wont even use all 8.
