Stick with the Hex core CPU. They can be overclocked to about 4.2 Ghz, or so quite easily. Possibly even higher, never really pushed them CPU's very hard.

Why would you go to a lower core processor for anything? Besides, you didn't tell us the most important factor. What resolution are you gaming at? If it's 1080P or higher the faster CPU is negligible at that point.

Examples: ... temid=1117 ... temid=1180

Phenom X6 is a pretty good processor.
and even if u want to upgrade why going to triple core or something like that?
if u wanna switch, switch to 6300/8300 series!
Core i7 2600
Cooler Master Hyper 412S
Gigabyte GA Z68A D3H B3
16GB Dual Channel 1333MHz
Corsair CX750
Hitachi 1TB 3Gb/s, WD 2TB 6Gb/s
