I have an MSI P6N-SLI motherboard. The manual says that it supports Core 2 Quad. What would be the best processors I can get for 100 - 200 dollar range? How about 200+?

Sadly it doesn't support the newest quads.

You are pretty limited with that chipset as it is a generation old.

Update your BIOS to v2.6 and it should support the Wolfdale E8600 (3.33GHz, E0, 65W).
