I would say the phenom has real cores, the FX series are a bit different. Take for example the FX-6100, it has 3 execution cores and 6 threads.

umm actually I think the 6300 might just be the better choice.
Piledriver is about 15% faster than bulldozer and so the 6300 might be equal or better than the 965BE.

I would say go for the newer chip. i.e the FX6300

Also the 6300 can be OC'ed to about 4.5-4.6GHZ on air while the phenom starts to top out at 4.1GHZ

FX 6300 it is an improvement on the Phenom however most games are GPU bound so get whichever lets you get the best Graphics card.

Does the 8 corefx really not have 8 acytual cores? Does it have 4 cores and 8 threads? I'm in the same situation, except I do a bit more video editing and multithreaded/core tasks. Would the 8 core 8120 or 8320 or 8350 or whatever be better than a cheaper 955/965? Or would a 6 core or 4 core piledriver be better? sry if this is threadjacking
