Need Help finding the right CPU

I have basically no idea what cpu to get, what i do know is that my motherboard is a IPIEL-LA3 (Eureka3) and I find out that it is compatible with either an Intel Core 2 Quad (Yorkfield core) series or an Intel Core 2 Duo (Wolfdale core) Dual Core series.

    don't forget the 95w limitation though that pretty much just leaves out the extreme editions. LoL
    Typically get the fastest cpu you can afford though I really recommend you just save your money for a new build.

    Happy hunting
