Does multi threading an i7 help with gaming?

I know some games use 3 cores, I haven't heard of any that use 4. So do any games benefit from multi threading? If some do, is it rare? I'm going to turn it off if the majority of gaming I do won't benefit from it.

If gaming is the main purpose, then opt for a Phenom II or i5 750.

Dedicate more money towards gfx card.

I've read that but it doesn't tell me if multi threading has a negative effect on gaming.
