  • What is the best single core CPU to get?

    The single core CPU that I can think of are:

    AMD Athlon
    AMD Athlon 64
    AMD Athlon X2
    AMD Athlon XP
    AMD Duron
    AMD Geode
    AMD Opteron
    AMD Sempron
    AMD Turion 64
    Intel Celeron
    Intel Celeron D
    Intel Celeron M
    Intel Core Solo
    Intel Itanium
    Intel Pentium
    Intel Pentium 4
    Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Ed.
    Intel Pentium 4 HT
    Intel Pentium D
    Intel Pentium III E
    Intel Pentium M, Centrino
    Intel Pentium MMX
    Intel Xeon
    Intel Xeon MP

    Probably one that is pin compatible with your motherboard

    Seriously, this question cannot be answered without knowing more about the total configuration of your hardware, the purpose you want to put the system to and your budget.

    And you could go back a long way with single core processors:
    Pentium II
    Pentium
    486 (does the co-proc in the DX count as another core?)
    386.......

      Sorry that I didn't give enough details. I'm just planning to build up a system and my budget is unlimited. I've decided on the Amd Sempron 140 2.7ghz 4000MHz HT 1MB L2 Cache w/ 64-bit Processing & AMD64 Technology because all of its specifications and that it's under $100. There are some CPUs that are faster than 2.7 GHz, such as the Pentium 4 HT at 3 GHz, but I figure that Sempertons speculations will run the gigahertz faster enough to make up for the .3 GHz difference. Do you agree to all of this?

        Of cores not.

        Advice Pro, are you purchasing a new or secondhand CPU? I ask because you mention a P4, 3GHz HT. This is a processor I am unable to purchase new anymore in OZ as it is a bit old and out of date.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.
        1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
        2 2 1 1 2

          No, I'm going to purchase new.

            If your budget is unlimited, why a single core? Why not get a Core i7?

              I'm building a computer cluster where each node can best only used one multicore processor.

                Check out this tool http://processorfinder.intel.com/Default.aspx

                Choose either the inter Xeon orIntel Pentium 4 as they are the most likely single core options.
