    I don't think it will make a difference go with what is cheaper.

    I'll have to agree with Bill here(never though I'd speak does words...) go for the new tech, Even do you need a VERY solid PSU to OC it.

    If your going to buy a new AMD FX chip, then go with the FX6100 for $189.99

    so tell me then, what games are better with more cores versus higher speed? my power supply is a rosewill hive 750, hopefully that's a good enough ps for the overclocking of the fx chip. i was wondering what effects the higher l3 and l4 cache on the fx will have? why is the fx chip almost $30 cheaper than the phenom equivelent on newegg? I do want to overclock to around 4ghz on air, so heat might be an issue on witch one i choose.

    the zambezi chips don't oc as well as hoped and nor do they out perform the phenom equivalents which is why the phenoms are more expensive.

    We did not receive the 6 core sample, only the 8 core 8150, the two people I know that own the FX6100 have had no problems reaching 4 - 4.5GHz, but that also depends on which motherboard and cooler you will be using.
