In that case, a socket 939 San Diego 3700+ should do wonderfully.

if you have the 2800+ and want to upgrade to a Venice, you'll need a new motherboard. the 2800+ is a socket 754, while the Venices are socket 939

the 3700+ is the lowest end San-Diego chip. it has an extra 512kb L2 cache over the Venice. otherwise it is exactly the same as the venice

If your budget really is no limit the only option is a multicore processors, threads will go multithreaded over the timespan you listed and you'll start to see real performance differences between single and multicore processors.
