I'm looking for a CPU to upgrade the current one in my Dell Precision 490. The current one is Xeon 5130 dual core 2ghz and I'm looking for a good one for some light gaming. 

 

What's the best CPU I can get for it?

It would be much easier to recommend if you mentioned a budget and the kind of games you want to play. My personal understanding of light gaming when it comes to your particular system is CSGO and LoL.

Mainly games ranging from Team Fortress 2 to Grand Theft auto V 

 

Also it don't matter the budget if it's under 50$

 

Also I don't mind low at 720p since my monitor only supports 720p

I recommend a upgrade to the X5355. Do a bios upgrade before installing the CPU. Id say the best pair is a GTX 1060 and playing at 1080p Low/Medium with the X5355.

Weird I live in Canada too and I can, either way they are pretty much all the same price on eBay so I'd just order anyome of them.
