clearly you need to get to know www.google.com better. Here's a table of what some other ppl are getting on their E8500s and other CPUs

as for your 8800GT question... higher clocks will remove any bottleneck caused by a slower CPU compared to the 8800GT. At 3.16Ghz, I doubt there's a lot of that going on... even less so if you game at higher resolutions...

and again.. get to know www.google.com
