Default Picking a processor

Trying to pick a processor.
ive decided on either
Intel

or
AMD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103529

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

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