The E4300.
This one is pretty amazing.
Specifications as follows:

Clock Speed: 1.80GHz
Bus Speed: 800MHz
Manufacturing Process 65nm
Cache Memory: L2 2MB
LGA775 Socket

Now here's the thing. This processor can be easily clocked above 3.2GHz where you'll see performance greater than the X6800 (Previously the fastest consumer processor available.)
As for the price tag, you'll be looking at no more than $200, with a price cut forcasted for Q2 where you'll see it drop to $133.
Here's a review. http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2903

I'd still rather have my E6600 (300$, Oc'd to 3.6 @ 1.4 volts stable). And the QX6700 Kentsfield has much better performance than the X6800 Conroe.

The QX6700 can faster handle multiple processes simultaneously, but the X6800 can handle individual processes more quickly.
-I'm pretty sure it holds strongest while overclocked too.

Meh, I find it hard to keep up with such things. The next time I'm going to upgrade is probably when I'm hideously outdated, as with my old comp. I'm goin to wait for a better AMD processor anyway.
