Thank you

Graphics... 2 ATI Radeon 3870s
Windows Vista 32 bit.

Basically mate just look at any socket 775 cpu and decide what you want to pay. ebuyer .com is a good place to look.

I am looking for the best Processor for gaming not necessarily the most expensive.

I use my pc for gaming too, Assasins creed, Dragon age origins and the like. Ive got the same cpu as you. My mate has a top of the range core 2 quad and the same graphics card (geforce 7900gs) and his dosent play any games noticably quicker than mine.
If I had to choose I would buy this. click here
