Best, fastest processors?

Is there a guide showing the best ( and worst!)Intel Pentium processors. There is a bewildering number of PC's on the market, and each one I see has a different configuration, which sometimes leaves me baffled!
I have a 3GHz Intel Pentium 4 with Hyper Threading, and ATI Radeon Graphics card with 128 MB DDR SDRAM fitted, and I wonder how the newer processors would stand up to that, or compare with?

Also, CPU benchmark charts at:

PassMark click here.

Most newer CPUs are either dual/quad core these days. And some of the graphics cards have an astounding 2Gb RAM! And some run 2 of these at the same time - called SLI (by Nvidia) & Crossfire (by ATI).
