P.P. Mguire, heres a review for the 4 top AMD's. With the top Intels.
The 4000 and the FX-53 are basicly the same processor. Honestly! Look at this review, the 4000 doesnt just hold its wait againt the FX-53, it does better. When the FX-53 takes over a bechmark, the 4000 is rite behind it.
The price differience between the 4000 and the FX-53 beats the performance differience. Personally, i suggest the 4000. Its alot cheaper, and the FX-53 is not very much better. You really dont even see much of a increase in speed. If you got the 4000 and OC it another 100mhz, it would be better then the FX-53.
Although the FX dont have locked mutipliers. So thats alot better for OC.
