Default Crysis/gaming upgrade Help

I have been out of the hardware game for a while now so I was hoping for some advise on upgrading my PC because it doesn't run Crysis very well

At this stage I am looking at getting a Geforce 9800GTX, so that is sorted unless someone has a better idea.

For the best performance in Crysis and other demanding games would I be better off with an Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4ghx (Q6600) or an Intel Core 2 Duo 3Ghz (E8400)?

What chipset based mobo should I go for?
Intel Core i7 4770k @ 4.4ghz
ASUS Maximus VI Extreme
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 x2 SLI
Corsair H100i Hydro Water Cooler
Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB
Corsair AX1200i PSU
Intel 520 480GB SATA3 SSD
Western Digital 2TB Caviar Black Edition
Corsair Obsidian 900D Case
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD PCIe
Logitech Z-680 5.1 Speakers
Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard
Logitech G500s Mouse
ASUS VG236H 23.6" 120hz LCD with nVidia 3D Vision
Windows 8.1 Pro x64
