Default CPU for 8800GT SLI

just wondering which CPU is best for the 8800GT SLI Rig.
the Q6600 or the E7200?
just wondering, i know thw Q6600 is one of the OC king, and its really good since its a quad core.
But compared with the CPU which one wont be bottlenecking each other.
like will the E7200 OC to 3.0GHz be bottlenecking the 8800GT SLI, or will the 8800GT SLI bottleneck the Q6600.
thanks in advance

I vote Q6600 if you can wait a little to afford it.

What resolution? Any CPU will bottleneck at a lower resolution.

Do you actually have the two 8800GT's? Because I remember my 8800GT ran everything at 1600x1200, it was only at 1920x1440 that it had a few problems.

I'd say go for whatever's cheaper.
