Not much of a question to ask since there are only two Intel CPUs around the $65 mark: Pentium G620 and G630.

Personally though, I would not aim any lower than i3.

The Intel® Pentium® G620 would be the processor to best fit your budget. I would rather see you trying to move to the Intel Core™ i3-2120 but it is double the cost that you state.

Do you have to mobo already? If not tigerdirect has Phenom II x4 955s on sale for $75, I don't usually like to buy OEM chips but thats a pretty good deal. You weren't planning on using the stock heatsink for gaming though were you?

It's $10 over, but that $10 will take you far in this case.

OP was planning to do gaming on a Pentium-G6xx. Anything more than the stock HSF is pretty much wasted on that.
