I'm in the process of looking at parts for a pc that I plan to build in the next few months. I was planning on getting this CPU:

It's cheap, it's unlocked, and its got a decent clock speed. But I have been considering getting a more expensive i5 instead, so that it would be relevant longer. Because I have heard that several games are either not supporting dual core cups at all, or that they run shitty with dual core cpus. I'll bet that in the near future, more and more games will also do this. What are your guys thoughts on this? Are dual cores being faded out? Should they be avoided by gamers?

Depends what games you want to play, but I would push for a 4 Core +  CPU.

I'd avoid the dual core CPU at all costs. Even if the dual core is enough to power the game, any background processes will cause hiccups and stuttering.

Dual Core CPU may be able to handle a task good, but they're bad at multitasking.

That CPU is fine. Really you just want the extra cores for background processes and multitasking, which an i5 does very well for gaming purposes.
