3+ GHz processors

3+ GHz processors: there don't seem to be any about when you look at built PCs. They all seem to be upto 3GHz core 2 duo or 3GHz core 2 quad.

Anyone know of a decent power PC that has 3+GHz (but without over clocking as not convinced about doing this to components (I know many of you will disagree with that)) core 2 duo or quad (although happy with a duo)

Thanks in advance.

Think I may need to clarify. I don't want a single processor; I want duo or quad (but happy with the duo) that is +3GHz and I cannot seem to find any. fastest duo I have found is in the Chillblast PCs.

Thanks again

overclcking a core 2 duo or quad could reduce it's lifetime but as they are made to last about 15 years + you will already upgraded to something new before then. the go stepping version q6600 go's up to 3.6.

I think you need to clarify a little more.

The most powerful cpu available is the Intel Extreme quad QX9650 (3GHz) which will set you back £650

Alternatively the Core 2 Duo E8500 at 3.16GHZ will be available soon.

You are asking for something that does not exist.

Why does it need to be more than 3GHz?
