Default Just one more little decision

Hey, sorry for the little torrent of threads :/ but circumstances have changed

the budget's increased, as I can use Win7 from my old PC and don't have to re-buy it. I know now that GPU should be priority, but this little bit of extra money seems to allow me a wildly better CPU but a (not that wildly) better graphics card. Which combo would you choose?

Radeon HD 7850 with AMD FX 8150

OR

Radeon 7950 with AMD FX 4100


They both come to (about) the same price. Thank youuuuuu !

I don't know much about 'bottlenecking' but I don't know if skimping on the CPU will bottleneck me. I just don't want to live in fear of bottlenecks. I don't want to open my front door one day and get bottlenecked by a big hairy bottle

FX 4170 with Radeon 7950 :3


I think your second choice would probably be better, if you can find a 4170 or 7950 on offer, go with the combo I suggested
