If possible, try and get a Q6600 or anything above it. I heard they don't cost that much and they are really good. My Q6600 right now running on stock plays games really nicely (BF3 Beta for a main example). But of course if you get a G0 if you go for a Q6600. Better overclockers for sure compared to the B3's.

I'm assuming that you're thinking about upgrading your sig rig, which means that there will be no overclocking. A Pentium Dual Core E6700 will perform better than what you have, but will bottleneck a new video card. However for what you'd spend on a new E6700, you can look around the forums and try to pick up a Core 2 Quad Q8300, maybe a little bit more.

According to this your motherboard supports the 8XXX series of quad core processors.

Ah, in that case you can try to overclock and it shouldn't bottleneck too much. But before you commit to buying a new cpu, check out the ocn marketplace.

Dual core processors are starting to show their age especially in newer gen games which utilise DX11. I myself just made the jump from a Core 2 Duo E6850 (slightly faster than E6700) to an i5 2500K. I can now tell you that i was being bottlenecked by the dual core CPU.

Previously when I play Deus Ex (settings med-high) i would get frame rate drops in large open areas. After i got the i5 2500K, i was shocked because suddenly the game was just butter smooth even after i maxed out the video settings. I use AMD HD 5850. If you plan on getting Battlefield 3, i highly recommend you get a quad
