For something like that, you would probably want a quad-core cpu, like a Phenom II x4 or and Core i5 750.

The Core 2 Duo is an older series. You would be far better off with a i5 750 or X4 655.

Defanitly go with the newer CPU's. You have nothing to gain w/ the old Core 2 duos.

My recomendation: Athlon x3 450 @

Studies show that only about 3 cores are being used most of the time, and for that speed you cant beat the price.

Dont go for the phenom CPU's, there's not a big enough performance jump for the money.
