The Phenom II x3 720 will be better for gaming with its 6MB of L3 cache. Also the Phenom II 720 also has the chance of unlocking the 4th core giving you even a better gaming experience.

GTA 4 and Bad Company like a CPU with 3+ cores

if you can OC, the x 3 435 makes a great budget gaming chip. Otherwise go for the x3 720.
