Intel Core i7-990X ($999.99 on newegg.com)
This processor has six cores for extreme computer multitasking and processing power. It clocks at 3.46GHz right out of the box and has the ability to be overclocked (be careful when overclocking). This processor is an LGA 1366 for processor, so it is meant for high end motherboards. Another note that you might add is that it is a 130 watt CPU so it requires a large amount of power (for a processor) to operate, so choose your power supply carefully. It will only work on Intel based mother boards.
