This may sound like a no-brainer, but Silicon Valley is the place to be for tech workers.

One out of every four workers in the San Jose metropolitan area is employed in the tech industry, according to a new report - the highest concentration in the country.

And the pay is pretty good too.

As of 2006, San Jose tech workers made an average of $144,000 per year, also the highest in the nation.

San Francisco tech workers are second in the country at $118,000.

Oakland came in fourth at $96,000.
