why is that such a horrible thing, i am assuming its a intel i7, do they still do the "extreme edition" of it?

It's a bad question because there are a lot of High-End CPU's that cannot be directly compared.
If you want a great desktop CPU that overclocks well, then the Intel Core i7 3940K is the best option but i can't comment on server CPU's.

Thank you very much, How about for gaming? has there been a "best CPU ever" kind of thing?

AMD Buldozer is not even in the running, the FX 8350 is faster than the 8150 and is not in the running either.

yeah, how could you even throw the 8150 in the race of " best in the world"?

And that's fine, so do I. But liking them does not mean they have a CPU in the "best" category...

This one right now is easy - it's the i5-3570k. You'll find that all around the forums.

It's cheaper than the i7, but the only difference is that the i7 has hyperthreading that games don't use.

Yes, there are Xeon processors that have more raw power, but due to the restrictions on the rest of the build, their heat and power draw, and the fact that basically no game uses more than the i5's 4 cores...

Performance-wise, 3960X if 3970X doesn't pull away from that one. End of discussion.
