The Intel Pentium D 920 or better (930 or 940) do very well. They are dual-core, large cache, high speed, 64 bit capable processors that support Intel's VT technology.

This board and processor combination spec'd out quite well and performed as expected without any issues. We didn't over clock it, we just wanted straight functionality and it delivered.
