for best price/performance a 3600 or BE-2300 are best. for best overall performance a 6400+ BE is best (bigger cache+high speeds)

There are no guarantees, of course, but a lot of people are getting 3.1-3.2 pretty easily.

Could I still do some pretty decent gaming with the 3600+ or the BE-2300 and an ATI 3870?
I mean I run fear on my P4 3.2 ghz and an old 8600 gt.

You sure could.... the 3870 would work well for gaming.... neither one of those CPU's would hold you back.
