It looks like I may need to replace a CPU for a friend. He has an ASUS P5VD2-VM motherboard. Here is a link to the supported CPU's

http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5VD2VM_SE/#CPUS

Out of the list of supported CPU's which is the best?

Am I right in saying the best CPU this motherboard can support is the

Core 2 Extreme X6800(2.93GHz,1066FSB,L2:4MB,revB2)

and the next best after that is the

Core 2 Duo E6700 (2.66GHz,1066FSB,L2:4MB,rev.B2)

To be honest your friend is better off replacing the mobo, cpu and ram. But, if he can't swing it get the cheaper of the two cpu's.

The Core 2 Extreme is most definitely the best of the options, you can get one around $100 if you look around. The E6700 is indeed the next best, which I found on eBay for $35, but I'm not sure how much I would trust eBay.
