Fx 6200 vs phenom 1045T vs phenom 965 BE vs i3 3220

I know that's a lot of cpus to compare, but I'm kind of torn. I want to build a gaming pc but I have a pretty tight budget and can't afford an i5. I'm not looking for someone to suggest a build here, just a straight out answer as to which of these cpus would be best suited, not just to playing games, but also recording them with fraps or streaming.

  1. I'd wait for Piledriver. It comes out on the 23rd. The FX-4350 will be $130. It think it would be the best option.
  2. If you worry about power consumption intel is the answer. But if you like games and do some multitasking.. you might like the AMD FX cpu and you won't burn your wallet for a CPU that is overclokeable.

    How much better is piledriver really expected to be though? The fx 4350 would really have to be something for me to get it over a 965 which is 40 bucks cheaper or over the 1045T which is a six core and is 10 dollars cheaper....
