Phenom x3 @ 2.1ghz vs phenom x4 @ 1.8ghz

Which one is better for gaming (Games I have and going to be playing on it is bf3, gta 4 and skyrim)

graphics card = gtx 460
(buying a phenom ii x4 @ 3ghz soon but I dont have have the money currently and I have both of those processors and I will sell the one that isn't as good to get money for the phenom ii x4)

I think a quad core would be best, many games these days take advantage of all four cores. Both of those CPUs are very old and weak though, so I don't think it'll make much of a difference bettween the first two.

for bf3 yes 4 cores. almost every other game will do ok with 3 cores.
