So i just got a really, really good deal (basically free) for an FX 8120 and 550 Ti

Wondering how much weaker is the 8120, and also what kind of price do used one's go for?

Also would the 550 Ti be worth it to put in my system for PhysX? Or should i just sell it too?

What do you guys think?

It's pretty weak, even at high clocks. Bulldozer is just bad.

3570K vs 8150

Bulldozer was a spectacular failure. The newer Vishera chips are solid, but stay away from Bulldozer.

What's fanboy about what others said? It's true, BD is bad, even at its price point.
