Default Picking a processor

Trying to pick a processor.
ive decided on either

Im pretty much strictly a gamer, i dont multi task much at all so i wanna know which is better on a performance per dollar basis.
or mabey theres a beter processor out there below 150$?

also in the case that i go with AMD is it better to get
and just buy a better cooling device? are there other things i need to buy for it?

disregard those, everyone is going to tell you to get a Conroe, and baseing form the prices of the ones you posted i reccommend an E6300 but you could also get and E6600 if you had the money

Go with the 4000+ if you're looking to save money, 1MB L2 cache for $130, you can't beat that.
