Actually no, the FX chips all have modules. The FX 4100 has 2 modules which has 2 "cores" a piece.

Read the last sentence of that set. It's why they suck.

i would crossfire, but the current 7770 takes up two slots. (and therefore covers my second PCIe...i think i have a second O.o) so i guess its a swap to a new card. i'll choose which one when i have monies...im just speculating in anticipation of monies XD.

On the subject of FX quad cores, the 4100 is a quad core, my bios tells me its two physical cores, two logical. so that's where i got that from

Your time zone post puts it in the perfect time for me to reply really.

I would not go Crossfire. Marginal gains for lowend price really. Get a single card solution.

You're bios is right. The 4100 does not have 4 actual cores.
