So anywho, I'm purchasing a new computer, which one would be better for gaming? A Phenom II X6 or a Intel Core i7? I'm looking forward to be playing the most hardware demanding online games...

out of the I7 you will only get a few (read: with a good video card, not a noticeable difference. maybe 10-15 at most from what ive seen) FPS better in games. its audio/video work that it does much better in. unless you plan on doing that, go with the AMD and put the money saved into a better videocard.
