Default CPU for 8800gts?

What would be the cheapest processor that would cope with running an 8800gts 640mb? I was looking at the C2D E6320 originally but I was wondering if I could go for a cheaper one?

If anyone could also suggest a mobo to go with a suitable pair that'd be great

No, I originally thought they were making an E4320 and E4420 as well but nope. Currently they only have stated that they are releasing the E6x20 models.

4mb cache is hardly any real world performance than 2mb on the C2D's. Only a few things does it shave a few seconds off such as encoding.

Gaming is hardly any difference so the E4300 is fine.
