I have a choice of these CPUs which I will be using to play games. I already have a dedicated video card and I really need to pick between these two. Can you also recommend me a motherboard as well?

Go with the AMD. It's quite a lot better at gaming than the Intel.
And for the motherboard, since you're on a budget, look for the cheapest FM2 motherboard that is reccomended in this list (slide it to the right).

Ah alright, I'll pick one up, though I assume that the Athlon X4 740 is pretty much the A8-5500 without the onboard GPU, however there seems to be little information on it. Also I can't seem to see this list you're talking about.

For me it would be about 500 HKD, which is aprox 60 USD more expensive to go from G860 to Phenom 965. Which sorta puts me off a bit.
