Games at the moment dont use all four cores on a quad, much less six on a Hex-core chip,
Open to correction but the sweet spot for gaming at the moment seems to me is,
4Ghz on the processor
4Gb ram minimum (6Gb preferred on Intel triple channel Mobo's)
and a good graphics card
obviously your psu needs to be up to the power demands as well

Intels 2500 and 2500k are pretty much the best gaming chips right now, but Amd's 955BE, 965BE and 975BE can all hit 4Ghz as well

Intel core technology is better than AMD's currently. An Intel quad like the i5 2500K will outperform an AMD hexacore in nearly all areas, especially games
