FX is trash, no way around it. I'd take a 200GE over an FX-4300 anyday of the week!

It is a real eye opener when I found my Pentium G4600 was able to game FAR better than the FX 8320 @ 4.7GHz. It's just sad to see it fall so far behind. I also STILL see FX CPUs for sale as new and they are often priced around the same as a budget modern 4 core CPU so it is really sad. Its value as a component should be lower than said pentium that smashes it but preferably never sold as "new" again. Well if someone is using it just to play facebook games then sure I doubt a user could tell the difference between a FX and my pentium but playing any actual games (especially WoW) it is night and day difference.
AMD FX is Windows ME of CPUs. Never touch either one with a 10 foot pole.
