Upgraded to fx-8150 and so far no buyers remorse. It nearly doubled my 3dmark 2011 to 8316. Install was the easiest i have ever installed.

Thanks guys

Good to hear. As much as bulldozer disappointed its still a great drop in upgrade for anyone on a dual core. That said I personally prefer a 1090t/1100t, but they have pretty much gone into extinction at this point.

I am running an x3 710 and have debated upgrading to a 955/965/1090t (I am on an AM2+ MOB, so FX CPU are a no go) and have pretty much decided to hang on to what I have until I do a CPU/MOB/Ram upgrade (except for the unlikely even that I get a ridiculously cheap price on a used CPU). I think if I was on a dual core athlon I would upgrade as you have done.

Enjoy.
