Best CPU to GPU pair, HELP!

Hi guys, i currently just upgraded my system, following spec
Pentium E2180 @2.75Ghz(2Ghz Stock, 1100fps 1.13Vcore) with rockfish multi socket cooler
2 x BFG GTS250OC 1GB SLI (Modified water cooled edition EOC 850/2750/2200)
Asus P5N-T DELUXE 780i MotherBoard
2 x 1GB Samsung OEM RAM 800Mhz 4-5-3-12
3 x 500GB Seagate 7200 16m (2xRAID0)
Sony Multi Blu-ray player
Ultra LSP650 PSU
Ultra full tower case
LG(1280x1025)Panasonic(1600x900)
Im looking for the cheapest intel processer that have the highest OC capability to run with my GTS250SLI, since i know im being bottleneck by my cpu in crysis from FPS shutter when it comes to a physic intensive scene. I mostly play crysis, cod and some small online fps game with my big moniter, i also dose some video editing, waching and downloading24/7. Any suggestion? to my best regard.

    well, im looking for a low budget cpu for some overclocking to overcome the bottle neck, estimate budget around 130$, use or new dosent matter.
  3. Gaming gets CPU dependent mostly at lower resolutions.. However, in your current setup your GPU's are getting bottlenecked by your CPU's.. If you can afford a C2D E8400 then it'd take care of your gaming needs big time.. For a more lower budget, the C2D E7500 is a great performer.. Although, if you need your build to survive a fair bit of time then you should get your eyes on a quad core..

    Well, If you want I can sell you a E6600 for 69$+Ship.
  5. Speaking of 2gb more RAM, I would be intrested in selling you an E6600 and 2gb DDR2 for 95$+Ship.
