Default Which CPU to buy???

Hello, just bought a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 AM3+ mb, looking for suggestions on a CPU. Would mostly be used for single and multiplayer gaming, normal computer tasks
Thinking of the X4 980 or X6 1090t or 1100t....not to sure on the new FX series?

For gaming and other usual everyday use you won't need the X4 980, but if you're planning on video & sound editing/encoding and heavy multitasking, get an X6.
In any case don't consider the FX series.

Honestly get the 1090t I have owned a few and they were amazing currently I have a FX-8150 and its the worse thing AMD has made in 5 years. But the 1090 and 980 are both amazing cpu's and work very nicely for gaming
