Which Cpu is the best for gaming? Ive heard a lot about the i5-750 and the Phenom II 965 over a similarly priced 1055T

Could you guys tell me pros and cons, and if theres any other gaming processor that I'm missing

Muchas Gracias

what resolution (size monitor)? what games? which videocard? what are the rest of your specs? I think the new Sandy Bridge CPU's are scoring better than the 1366 or 1156 socket i7's. the 2600k looks very good.

The new socket 1155 Sandy Bridge CPUs destroy everything else. The i5 2500k for gaming or the i7 2600k for a $300 CPU faster than the $1000 i7 980x.

Let ask this as it goes along with the OP's question. is a 1055t or any other amd hexacore cpu overclocked really good for gaming compared to the 750?

No , even the quad core AMD processors are better gamers than the hexacores.
