WTF?! Where'd you get this? Roflcopter.
Doesn't matter if your processor is Dual Core, the clockspeed is too slow to max out the 7950GT. A better option than buying a C2D would be to simply overclock it. Around 2.5Ghz should be enough.
If you were to buy a C2D, an E6400 or E6600 would be enough at stock speeds. Or you could just get an E6300 or E4300 and overclock it...
