AMD A6 6400k dual core or AMD A8 6600k quad core

hey guys, now I know the A8 is superior than the A6 but can someone help distinguish the differences and perks of dual core vs. quad core. I will be mostly using this cpu for gaming.

    The A8 is a bit better but costs more

    Are you getting a gpu as well? If so, get an FX8320 instead.

    quad core is better in some games eg Watch Dogs, but quite often dual core is OK or single core where you want good single core performance - Intel.
