Phenom 1100T!

Anonymous

AMD phenom ii x6 1090 or 1100T are the best cpus AMD have ever made (the 965 and 980 are good too). I doubt Piledriver would match it, since it was more about reducing power usage of Bulldozer, and Bulldozer was slower than the older phenom iis.

I agree with Prophet4NO1.

The Phenom II 1090T all the way

AMD A6-3500 is an awesome APU, pretty cheap and it has 3 cores @ 2.1 GHz (OC @ 2.4 GHz from BIOS) and Graphics Radeon HD 6530. I´ve not played AS A GAMER with a lot of Graphics, but works very good with my Online Games.

there is no such thing as a good amd processor for gaming. the only right choice is, unfortunately intel. amd gone with their ideas for design automation Intel processors leaving the gaming PC market without any competition.

I would be interested to know if AMD CPU's perform better with Radion graphics cards or Nvidia in games?

I would say Phenom X4-series BE; true quadcore at a good price. The new FX-series are nothing to look at unless the games or application can use more than two cores; the single-threaded performance is far from good.

At work I pretty much only recommend the 965 or the 1045T since they are better than the low end FX chips. By the time you get to the two 8 core chips, buy an i5. The i5 has so much better single thread performance they smoke AMD in games for about the same money. So, in the end the FX series is pointless when older chips are better in the lower price and at the higher priced chips Intel makes a better one. There are a few application specific scenarios where the 8 core FX chips are better, but for the most part they are significantly out paced by the Intel quad cores. I would recommend the 1100T or 1090T if we actually got them at work, but instead we get a crap ton of FX chips that very few people buy.

Whatever runs any game on max fps is good enough for me ;)

I feel some of the more expensive CPU's are kind of overkill, atleast when it comes to gaming. Imho most mid-range priced CPU's are outrunning todays game's graphics.

Ofcourse the graphics card plays a huge role too.

1090T or 965BE

Overall the best AMD( overall that's the important thing- not the BEST) is definitely the Phenom X4 965/55. It's priced around Intels i3s but the advantages over them is that fact that it can be overclockable and it has 4 true cores- something the i3 doesn't have and will help later on.

My personal experience in terms of overclocking the cpu.
PC1 CM CM960 II, AMD Phenom 9850 Black Editon score 10/10
PC2 CM STORM SNIPER, AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition score 10/10
PC3 CM CM 960 II, AMD FX-4100 score 7/10
PC4 ANTEC LANBOY AIR, AMD FX-6100 score 8/10
PC5 NZXT SWITCH 810, AMD FX-8150 score 8/10

This is based on how easy it was to overclock them, the performance of the individual systems vary because of the different motherboards and other things. Although PC1 with AMD Phenom 9850 Black Editon scores 10/10 while PC5 with FX-8150 only score 8/10 the performance on the FX-8150 system is much better, much due to the current ssd and the ratio of the difference on an asus formula 2 and Asus Sabertooth 990 fX. But as the score says, i feel i got moe out of overclocking the old systems compared to the new ones. All systems still workes today :-)

I have a AMD FX-4100 @ 4.5Ghz and if you have a high end graphics eg AMD 7800/7900 series or Nvidia 660-680 it will play BF3 and Crysis on Ultra settings just fine and Metro 2033 medium - high settings just fine as well
