Default Dual Core or Single core?

I'm going to buy a cpu soon I just need help on which CPU to choose.
Athlon is what I'm going to use for a cpu, and I'm a gamer who likes to overclock.

I would like to spend a max of about 350 dollars. What should I get?

Athlon 64 X2 3800+. This'll overclock a long way. Don't buy the 4000 or 4200. Stick with the 3800 unless you plan on springing for the 4400+ X2. It has the increased L2 cache.
