I am going to upgrade from my current Intel Pentium D 2.8GHz HT processor to something dual-core, maybe even quad. My max spending limit is $150. I don't necessarly want the best out there, but I don't want a large bottleneck on my 8800GT that I will be purcahsing later. My Mobo has a 775 Socket. What is the best bang/buck I can get?
More aboutideal processor upgrade 8800
I would get an E7200 new 45nm C2D...right now they go for about 140...probably cheaper this summer.

the title has no answer
the idle process depends on the apps not gpu, the life of the pc, the budget all are more important.
a overclocked 2180 will work fine for gaming at 3.2ghz
