E6750 update

Hi, im looking for to update my computer a bit.

Now i have :
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.66GHz
Gigabyte P31-S3G mainboard
RAM 4GB 800Mhz DDR2
Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 512Mb -> have already ordered a Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC, 1GB GDDR5

So im looking for the options for replacing my processor without changing motherboard, so what would be the best choice for me?
I've been looking for some Quad core processors but i can't decide what would be the best for me.
And Okay, while we're at it, is there any good options for replacing the mobo for reasonable price range.

Thanks.

  1. If you are a gamer, the 560ti upgrade alone will make a huge difference for you. Even with the old C2D processor holding it back a tad. What resolution is your monitor, btw?
    If you still want to upgrade the processr on that DDR2 motherboard, you'll probably have to look at used C2Qs on someplace like ebay. But if you want to go for a new processor and a new motherboard/memory investment, let us know what your budget is. There's no sense recommending a $600+ combination if your budget is 1/3 that.
  2. The C2D E8600 is also a good improvement. With 6mb cache @ 3.33Ghz.

    You might need a BIOS update for a Core 2 Quad / the E8600
