Don't get the Clawhammer core, get the San Diego. Also I would recommend getting the 3700+ instead of the 4000+ and using the extra $$$ to get a 7800GTX. Graphics cards are the most important when it comes to gaming and you could just OC the 3700 to 4000 speeds and beyond.

Nah man. 4000+ is much easier to overclock with the 12x divider, it'll make your life a whole lot easier.

They're Dual Core. Forget about em if you're gaming.

Dual Core = extremely strong CPU, but not very useful for gaming.

Acually dual cores are more future proof for when games start to become multithreaded. Only downside to dual core is that they cost alot more.
