Which P4 offers the best price/performance ratio right now and which is friendly to overclocking?

Thanks in advance for any and all responses.

I'll answer only your question, I'll let others suade you to AMD or wait for Prescott. Currently the 2.6C is the best for price/performance and OCing ability. Just make sure you have good RAM.

Agree... Current best P4C is the 2.6GHz

If this post has attitude, seems to be overly aggressive, rude, distasteful to 99% of the users here, and shows a zealous defense of Intel... It’s probably Spud.

3.8GHz on air!? Don't all those people who bought Prometeias feel foolish now... Anyway, I don't believe it, so prove it (oh yeah, has to be stable too).

Okay, 1) he said he could only take a screenshot at 1.6 volts (why he didn't go to 1.7 is beyond me), 2) the air was below freezing...I was talking about daily, in-room usage--with the window closed, 3) he didn't run his RAM in synch, if I had to guess, his performance was no better than a 2.8C@3.5GHz with FSB/RAM in synch.

I'd hardly call that stable...what I would like to see is a 2.8C @ 3.8GHz, with FSB/RAM in synch and in a normally-temperatured room on air cooling. That 3.8GHz is not for daily usage. You should know by now that using extremes as examples never means anything.
