Wich CPU for 2 ATI 5870's crossfire

Hello, I recently placed a thread to find out why my GPU's lag more in crossfire then a single one. Yeah so turns out it was my cpu. Now the question is wich cpu would i buy to make my set up work. I have an Asus Se 6 motherboard and i was thinking about getting an I7 920 and maby get a Corsair Hi100 cooler to overclock it. i have no idea how high i would get it i guess 4GHZ. I have a 1000W power supply so i guess i have enough power.

Thank you for your help and comments.

    The i7 920 is old... Buy a i5-3570k or a i7-3770k
