The Core Duo was a great CPU in its time but we have moved to quads and the arch changes have been vast. That said, you can get a Core 2 Quad which would be fine for a year or more.

At 4Ghz you would need to move up to a GTX 570 level of card to see any bottlenecking. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
