The Phenom II X2 555 BE will be the fastest for older games and ones which use two cores, newer games or games which can use three cores the Phenom II X3 710 will have the edge, and games like GTA IV or heavy CPU games the Athlon II X4 620 will be best.

I recently wen through a similar process with my HTPC/light gaming rig.

i settled on the athlon II. my reasoning being that most games coming out in the future will utilize the extra cores, older ones that don't will still run fine on it, whereas the 550 may run those older games a little better, it may end up rendering newer ones laggy or unplayable.
