It depends what your pricing is like. With our pricing I would go with an x6 1090t.

My vote is for the 1090T, pretty cheap plus plenty of power.

Just throw a bulldozer on there,surely they r still not what we expected but with the upcoming patch for Windows 7 this FX8120 (i would've prefer just going to a 8150^^) these CPUs should have some extra boost from 10-30% depending on the application (some games already run faster on this CPU better than the 2500k but this update will surely settle things up)

For your infos,Microsoft announced that the update was wrongly published on internet,i'm myself was surprised in the first place,as it's world wide,but it clarify that this update didn't did anything to users,rather it decreased perfomance in some systems (depends on config)
The update will come later,for those who installed the update,or didn't,Microsoft is soon releasing the REAL PATCH for this Bulldozer,it's going to change a lot of things in the base code of windows 7,as they use different type instructions,sure the update won't be so heavy (700 MB???! that won't happen) but surely it will settle things up for that platform

I think it really depends what you are planning to do with the system. If you are just gaming, get teh 1090T.

1090T > FX-6100 for games
