Bulldozer CPUs may be newer than the previous Phenom IIs but bear in mind that they are different. Since you've not followed the whole Bulldozer drama, I'll give a simple explanation. Phenom IIs have a full sized core, I'll give a value of 1. Bulldozer cores are different, they have about the value of 0.8 or 80% of the performance of what it used to be. So essentially you're getting less performance compared to its predecessor.

I wouldn't suggest against getting an AMD Bulldozer based rig as it is pretty cheap after a couple of price cuts. There are many reviews out there regarding the FX4100, I'll let the numbers speak for themselves. Either way, you'll get a decent rig.
