Your CPU shouldn't be holding you back at all. From what I've seen, its the clock speeds more than the # of cores that matter. So your 3.1GHz should be ample right now. If you have your heart set on a new CPU, the e8400 or e8500 seem to be the best gaming CPUs right now (excluding the qx9650 or 9770, which are absurd).
