I was looking to upgrading my Dell 8300's processor from a Pentium 4 @3.00 ghz to something better, but I'm not to educated when it comes to processors so can anyone recommend the best upgrade I can get from my old Pentium 4? Money isn't really an issue at this point.
 
Before you upgrade:
1. Run a defragmentation (Primary cause of old PC's becoming slow)
2. MAX out your system's RAM (4GB is the max for your motherboard [1GB modules in each slot])
3. Buy the CPU

(and that is the best price I could find.)

I don't reccomend you spend that much on a CPU though.
You would be better off spending money to buy a new motherboard, CPU and RAM.
You could have a Quad Core CPU with a faster FSB and 8GB of RAM for LESS!!
