Pentium Extreme Edition 965
Frequency 3.73 GHz
Packaging 775-pin PLGA
Vcore 1.25-1.4 V
Bus frequency 1066 MHz
Typical heat dissipation 130 W
Core stepping C1
L2 cache 2 MB + 2 MB
Production process 65 nm
Hyper-Threading Technology Yes
EM64T (Enhanced Memory 64 Technology) Yes
Why bother with this when you can get the dual cores easier. Intel is phasing out the Single cores and has already stopped production on them.

Just out of curiosity, why are you limiting your CPU selection to single core processors? On todays market, dual core CPUs retail for less then $100.
I was assuming it was one of the P4 HT's because they get to like 3.8ghz... but apparently theres more to it than the clock rate. What other things do you have to consider? I know theres the cache, and the side bus... anything else i should take into consideration? But most importantly whats the best single core processor?

Even with the 3.73 Prescott processor he will have to overclock the FSB to 800 and that could cause problems. It would be far easier to buy a MB-cpu combo and install it but that was not the question he was asking.

Yeah, that's what I was going to suggest.
