AMD 64 is the fastest CPU if ure running only one instance at the time, but if you have Pentium4 with HyperThreading you can run 2 instances at a time, and then Intel is a much better choice, much bigger daily output.
Northwoods C and Presscots are best choice for seti.

We have a benchmark section on the team website, but it hasn't been updated in about a year. Anyway the previous two comments pretty well sum it up.
