Check benchmarks (eg: www.tomshardware.com) before buying. As it turns out, the core duo is the fastest thing at the moment (well, the quad core ones are even better, but prohibitively expensive).

Finding them shouldn't be a problem... You should look on sites that sell hardware... That's newegg.com tigerdirect.com, etc...

you can get a 4300 for ~$160. clock speed for clock speed a C2D is 40% more efficient. so 40% faster and cooler.
my setup is: s3, 6400, crucial 6400 cas 4 ram, 7600gt. works great and I love it.
