Default New cpu

I have a intel core 2 duo e7400 @ 2.8Ghz i want to upgrade my budget is around 2000 preferably a quad core. I have heard that the Q6700 is good but that seems pretty outdated if im not wrong. I would like one that would be nice to OC. Any ideas?

Are you looking to upgrade your whole computer or just the CPU?

Then you don't need a $2,000 budget.

$319 will get you this:

Or you could upgrade to a Intel Core i7 or Phenom II if you want to be a little more future-proof, although the one I mentioned should be fine if gaming is all you're doing.
