I have an ASUS Rampage II for a gaming pc I'm building. What is the best cost/performance i7 1366 proc value. For my grandson and he likes Crysis and a couple of older games. I can scale up when necessary but don't want to break the bank on the first build. Thanks

Any one of them will do with overclock. If you on the other hand sell that LGA1366 board (still good value) and get him a I5 2500K on a lga1155 P67 or Z68 chipset board you would be getting what is bang for the buck for gaming today.

Thanks. I need to stay with the Rampage due to other components in place and will upgrade proc later.

That's precisely the problem, you won't be able to. Intel have moved on from 1366.

Best value for money would probably be the i7 930, it's a beast of a CPU. Any other 1366 CPU's are overpriced imo.
