Intel Core i7 930 from Microcenter (In-store pickup $199)

Intel Core i5 750 or AMD Phenom II X4 955 C3 depending on your preferrence in System builds.

+1 core i7 at microcenter! (however, this will result in getting higher end motherboard/more ram which means more money!)

you upgrading ur current comp or building new?

Core i5 750 or Phenom II X4 955, 965 will do the job very well. i7 @ Microcenter is the best option but the platform ( X58 chipset, triple-channel DDR3 ) is going to cost more that i5 or PII 965, so it depends on your budget.
