I'm pretty certain that the i3 would be faster clock per clock with or without hyperthreading enabled.

Best solution

Even without HT, the i3 would be the winner

Once OC headroom is taken to account i3 is a no-brainer.

However, getting a Phenom II quad core (unlocked cores, if you get lucky) for $100 is tempting. ;)
