Why does it have to be single core?
Id Say, 3700 Venice (I think)

Dual core is an Option.
4400+ For OCing
4600+ For no OC (At ressonable prices)

You would need some serious cooling for that.

I CERTAINLY plan on overclocking, especially since I'm only planning to use these parts until mid 2007 (upgrading full when dx 10 comes out ATI)
What would you suggest I buy to reinforce my cooling??

http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811129154

this is my case, i think it has pretty good cooling,
"1 rear 120mm Tricool fan (standard) with 3-speed control to balance quiet with cooling
1 top (standard) 120mm TriCool Fan
1 lower chamber (standard) 120mm x 38mm (thick) TriCool Fan"

what else would you recommend?
I hope not water cooling.....
-.-
