1. What will it be used for? Will you be using it for gaming, video editing, general web browsing, etc...
2. What is your budget?
In general, the best processors on the market in order are currently:
1. Intel Core 2 Duo
2. AMD Athlon FX
3. AMD Athlon 64 X2
4. AMD Athlon 64
5. Intel Pentium D
6. Intel Pentium 4
7. Intel Celeron/AMD Sempron
You may find varying opinions, but in general these are how the current batch of processors rank. Also, there are multiple versions of each of these processor types and the higher the product number the better the performance. Of course, the better performance also comes with an increased price.
So, if you're looking for a top of the line system, then go for Core 2 Duo. If you're looking for a bargain priced middle-of-the-road system, then I would look into Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 64 systems.
