As of now, in that price of 6.5k, either settle for FX4100 or as its said, wait till the FX4300 gets available !!

Wait for FX-4300 to be released in India. But if it will not be made available within January, you can opt for FX-4100. It is okay for gaming, if not best. BTW, you should mention at what resolution you're planning to play games.

^^ fx4300 is still not available mate. You also cannot get phenom 2 x4 or athlon x4 as they are EOL.

Wait for fx 4300/6300. That will be the best thing to do imo.

Although the Motherboard will support the CPU but it is not recommended to use a 125W CPU with that Motherboard. It comes with 4+1 VRM design and with a 125W CPU, the overclocking is a strict no.

Another thing, the version of your Motherboard is Rev 3.1 as I can remember suggesting you that. But officially Rev 3.1 version only support Bulldozer CPUs, not the Piledriver one. There is a new Rev 5.0 version available with Piledriver (FX 4300, 6300, 8320) support. So 1075T is your best choice till now. Let me check in some other tech forums if anybody is using FX-4300 with your Motherboard without issues. You also do that...if the rev 3.1 motherboard supporting 4300.
