Is there anything out there that would provide this kind of price/performance comparison that I am looking for??
What I do for price/performance is to find the Chart(s) that measure what I do that demands the most resources. In my case it's video rendering and I happen to use Pinnacle. I go to the Pinnacle chart and then open another page an go to newegg and price CPUs and compare them to the chart. Like with anything, you need to know roughly how much you want to spend. Don't know if newegg ships to Canada but if not, I'm sure there are Canadian companies that sell computer parts at good prices.
