Define occasional gaming. Regardless, I would recommend an Athlon 64.

athlon 64 if your going to be gaming at all. especially if your thinking of trying BF2. probably a good percentage of the posts on these forums are people complaining that they can't play BF2

Battlefield 2 is a barely, and the low FSB that the chip supports is also a big bottleneck.
