In my country 3500X and 3300X both are cost 165$. Will they give same performance in gaming? Which one will be best for gaming?

Though 3300X was labeled 120$ when it was launched but the market situation is different.

They are very close to equal, the additional cores of the 3500X is offset by the higher base clock on the 3300X. If you need the cores for other tasks go with the 3500X for the same price. See HERE for some specific games, but still about equal.

The 3500X is 6 core, 6 thread, whereas the 3300X is 4 core, 8 thread.

The 3500X has clocks of 3.6 base, 4.1 boost, whereas the 3300X has 3.8 base, 4.3 boost.

I would go for the 3300X. It seems like it might have some slight advantages given the higher clocks, and, if you need them, more total threads.
