You're close to the top of your range; only the higher i7-900s are better. However, they're all ridiculously overpriced compared to Sandy Bridge. You have socket 1366.

No need for a CPU grade. Your CPU would last you 2 years easy without a problem.

thanks all. i've not really been into OCing my machine; but it's good to see that I've got a bit more life in the thing yet!
