I want a strait up no bs answer.i will not be up grading for a while and I don't need to know how beautiful the upgrade path is for intel lol I will be playing games like bf3 minecraft maybe cod skyrim and I need to know witch one will be best for that and nothing eles. My specs are
A hd 7750 ( lots of stuff done to it it's name is to long now)

Generally the Core i3-3220.

The upgrade path is more "beautiful" for AMD though, because you can't upgrade the Core i3 with the next generation of Intel processors which is less than a month away.

Hi
I`ll vote for the Intel 3220 !

Why ?
the best score for the AMD is :
AMD OC to 4300 Mhz -> 7655 score
Uploaded Model Processor Frequency Cores Platform User Score
Apr 05, 2013 To be filled by O.E.M. AMD FX -4300 4300 2 Windows 32-bit 7655

and the Intel stock CLOCK
Intel Core i3-3220 3292 Mhz -> 9670 score

Uploaded Model Processor Frequency Cores Platform User Score
Mar 01, 2013 System manufacturer Intel Core i3-3220 3292 2 Windows 64-bit 9670

I wonder what will happen if we compare OC-ed Intel 3220 :) 

and since the Gaming for me is steam capabilities of the system -> 1 vote for the Intel 3220 :
And have a look on the memory performance too ......

Between the FX4300 and I3 3220, the I3 will be faster 95% of the time.

That being said, for $10 more than the I3 or $20 more than the FX4300, you can buy an AMD FX6350 ($139.99 at newegg) which will be as fast or faster than the I3 3220. In heavily threaded applications and games, the FX6300 (6350) will give I5's a run.

Btw, you mention you already have "Gigabyte 970 mother board"? I assume it's an AMD 970 chipset motherboard. If that is the case, unless you want to replace your motherboard you will have to stick with an AMD CPU.

The i3 3220 is going to give you better stock performance than the 4300 with your 7750 . simply answer

If your 970 is a ud3,ud4 board go with the 6300

I just cannot agree with buying a dual core in a time where all softwares are moving away from dual cores in support of 4+ core cpus. I am not a fan of the 4 core FX cpu's from amd as they are in all honesty often beat buy dual core intel cpu's. However the 6/8 core FX's are a completely different story. They dominate price/performance. Since you already have an AMD board I would go with a 6300 or 8320. and with a $30 cooler my 6300 at 4.5Ghz is significantly faster than any i3 at basically everything much closer to i5 territory.

Since this thread is more than 5 months old, you're probably not going to influence the purchasing decision here.
