I need to get the nth percentile of the values in the collection. To compute the percentile, I first need to sort the values (a property of the object in the collection). Then I can use ElementAt function to get the nth item I need to compute the percentile.

I can use the Sort method but that will be very inefficient because after adding a single item, the whole collection will have to be sorted. I also cannot use the value to be sorted as a key because the value is not unique.

What collection should I use?
