Which of these will be best for gaming at 1280X1024 resolution with every setting maxed,AF16 and AAx2:

intel Pentium D 965XE 3.46Ghz
Intel Pentium D 955XE 3.73Ghz
Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66Ghz

I also want to mention that I will be using XFX Geforce 9800GTX+ or Asus Geforce 9800GTX+ Dark Knight 512MB,a motherboard with Intel G31 or G33 chipset and 4GB ram.I am very low on budget also.So consider these gadgets,budget and the resolution also?

Intel C2D E7300 is the best of the 3. You should also keep in mind that when it comes to PC games, the GPU is the most important factor since PC games are more GPU dependant than CPUs.

Core 2. No-brainer.

PC games are equally demanding on both. If you skimp on one, it will bottleneck the other.

I remember allready telling you in another thread to pick the E7300 (although I think that one had a E7200) over a Pentium D....
