Default Looking for Opteron gaming benchmarks

I'm debating whether to buy an Athlon 64 or an Opteron processor. I do a lot of heavy gaming and I want to know which processor will be better for me. Can anyone link or post Opteron benchmarks or better yet benchmarks that specifically do Athlon vs. Opteron?
I can only find server-like benchmarks for Opterons. Any help I can get would be appreciated.

The Opteron 14* and 150 are basically the San diego core and so will perform similary to the same ghz counter part 64. The real advantage is that the Opterons can overclock really high due to being made with better silicon, so will perform alot better at the very easily reached 2.6ghz and above.
