What system are you going to use this on and what is your budget for the CPU?

I went with an Intel CPU and motherboard chipset as I find them to be the most reliable.

here are some prices from pricewatch com.
Balance your cpu with the graphic card.
The 6600 PCI express is the Biggest Bang for your buck. Price/Performance is outstanding. If you choose PCI express, then you will want 939 Pin cpu, and a matching motherboard capable of PCI express.

Check out price guides on Anandtech.com; they have really good information on which components are good to buy at what price ranges.
