The C2D are EXCELLENT overclocking CPU's most get around 60-85% overclock easily.

Do you really expect to play games on an LCD tv that large with a mid range card? The 8600GT can barley handle new games at medium quality on a 19 inch monitor let alone a 32 inch TV.

The max res is even 1368x768, I usually use 1280x720 though.

Again- Which c2d is the best value? and what mobo is the best value?

The e6420 is the best bang for your buck C2D currently. It's around $186. So the best bang for your buck CPU/motherboard combo, is e6420/Gigabyte P35-DS3R. You can go e6320, if you want to save $20 bucks, but that's nothing.
