Default opteron or x2 ??

im having a hard time deciding on which processor i shoud buy, AMD Athlon x2 4200 or the Opteron 170, i kno the opteron is better for OCing but is it equal performance without any OC? so that makes opteron better wen it actually OCs.. or if u got any other processor in mind around that price or lower then please tell me. i need a good processor for gaming btw.
