Which CPU is better for gaming?

I saw that AMD quad-cores are cheaper than Intel dual-cores. Does that mean it's better to go with that? Also I have two examples that I found and would like to know which one is better. If there are better budget CPUs please recommend.

AMD Phenom II X4 955

Intel Pentium G2120
