for gaming. out of those processors. go for an e8400 then overclock.

or if the price difference isnt that much maybe consider q9XXX. but i think they are still too pricey to make it worth it

oh ok. whats the budget then?

if you can afford a 5300 or 6X00 then they will be allot better for like $20

either way they will all be easy enough to overclock and gain some cheap power

To be honest, for modern games, you're going to need a better GPU. I don't think the CPU makes a huge difference.

That said, I would go for the E5200 and overclock the sucker as much as you can. I get 3.9 on mine on air and it cost me $50.
