    AMD FX-4100 Vs Phenom ii X4 955 | Compare Processors
    Check the results , AMD FX 4100 is much better.

    Anyway i recomend u get i5 or i7 by intel.

    Check Benchmarks.
    i7.
    AMD FX-4100 Vs Core i7-2600K | Compare Processors

    Anyway u will be able to play BF3 , in Medium settings (60FPS) [i think...)
    With i5 or i7 , all on Ultra with 50 -70 FPS.

    Phenom II X4, BullDozer is awful, I recommend you to stay away from that chip if possible.

    Go with the Phenom, the FX series have been a flop.

    Get the phenom. The 4100 uses modules rather than cores, making the phenom a true quad core processor

    number of cores =! performance.

    The i3 2120 is a better gaming cpu than the 955 or 4100.

    And if you OC it a little you get a beast, and it has a 35w TDP compared to 95w (4100).

    You need an lga 1155 mobo for it, don't forget about that.

    Also get a hyper 212 or 612 cooler so you can overclock.

    Head over to -> Build a PC for better advice.

    EDIT: Also, the i3 does indeed beat the fx and phenom 2 in gaming, but in some other parts it's overtaken by some amount.
