Well there you have it, in gaming at stock speeds, the phenom ii x2 beats the athlon ii x4, i think your choice is simple.

That is definitely an informative article. And I've been doing some reading BF2 is optimized for quad-core by the looks of it.

It probably is. I would still go with the Athlon X4. If he ever decides to play other games that utilize more than 2 cores you'll be happy you have them. If you OC the Athlon X4 to the Phenom II speeds (3.1GHz), the difference is very negligible in a lot of cases, it's just L3 cache.

WoW isn't really much of a demanding game. My brother plays WoW on an Athlon II X2 and a 4850, and he gets 60 fps with all settings maxed 90% of the time. dips down in raids and what not (1280x1024).
