I would go with the phenom II x4 965 BE because you can overclock it....i think it pulls a little better fps stock anyways but put a nice oc on that cpu and you will be good to go

the 965 on tri or quad core optimized gaming, the i3 on single or dual.

So basically on a higher end game like BF3, I'd get better fps with the 965 than with the i3, and with lower end games like League of Legends or Minecraft, I'd get better fps with the i3 than with the 965?

As stated above, the 965 should excell in games that are multi threaded but overall the i3 has stronger cores, just less of them, so some games you play might be coded to utilze less cores hence the i3 would beat the 965 out.

I'd probably go with the Phenom II 965 simply because it's cheaper and will get the job done when it comes to gaming. Plus i like more cores (no real reason, especally since i'm just gaming).
