depends how you define best.

if you want fast, then maybe IBM Power5 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_POWER) or Sun UltraSPARC T1 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UltraSPARC_T1)

though if you mean desktop Core 2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_core_2) is pretty good and very low power.

well assuming money is no object the Athlon 64 FX range is virtually unbeatable
