If you're going to utilize 6 cores I'd go with the 1090T or FX-6100, lose 100Mhz on the 1090 but save $20 on either.
The FX series certainly was a let-down compared to expectations, but the 4100 is cheaper than a 955BE with performance around a PII X4 970-980.

Having an unlocked processor increases resale value and leaves the potential open for future forays into OC'ing.
Rather impressed with how fast everyone got all up in arms about someone not wanting to OC...
