Second this. E6420, 2GB DDR2-667 (CL4 1T), 8800GT bare stock, rocking maxed out Skyrim (except multipass AA, though FXAA enabled and drawing distance set to 1/3 of the slider), at solid 30 FPS, 1440x900.

I'd look around for a moderately okay P35 or P45 board and grab an E8400, E8500 or E8600. Those things are cool, don't use much power and fun to OC and fairly cheap to pick up. The only real expensive part is the board for this scenario, you'll want some RAM that will do 1066MHz or so or at least 800+. That is the processor I had the most fun overclocking of all time, so many settings to change and so much performance benefit in games and such it was good to learn on for myself personally, FSB overclocking is the best and is fun. thumb.gif
