if its an i7 you seek a match for, than there is none.
However, just because an i7 is better for gaming doesn't mean it's necessarily the best processor for the task.
If you run a lot of multi threaded apps, a long with gaming. I suggest a fx 8150 with an am3+ and overclocking that bad boy as high as you can. Not only will you not have any issues gaming, you will still have a fast processor for much less.
