The C2D E6550 is nice little cpu, but clock speed a little low, the C2D E8600 Wolfdale E0 Stepping 65w 3.33Ghz is my choice for gaming.

If you need more cores then C2Q Q9650 Yorkfield E0 95w 3.Ghz is a good choice.

Make sure motherboard is using BIOS F4 or later and put a small fan on the main chipset heatsink, can get a little toasty.
