hi, i recently upgraded my mobo from msi 790fx to asus Sabre tooth tuff edition. i was wondering to change my 955 chip to the bulldozer 4100. any advice on this move??
 
I agree with amuffin. Stick to the 955 for now and wait for Pilediver (the second gen FX) to think about an upgrade.

If you want a new chip anyway, the 8120 is kind of the only viable option, but even that CPU is not going to be a massive upgrade over your 955 @3.7Ghz. More of a sidegrade instead.

Cheers!

:heink: for what?

imo 955 is ~30-35% better than fx4100 (all at stock, tb off, multithreaded performance)

you can easily hit 4+Ghz on 955 with sabertooth
