I've been poking around the internet looking for effective circuit training routines. Does anyone have a super effective routine for building high quality core strength and Cadriovascular strength. any takers?

There's no real secret workout if you understand the principles behind whatever exercises you choose. From there, just place those exercises in an order that won't "directly" tax the exact same muscle twice in a row and you're gold.

What kind of equipment do you have access to? Or are you looking for body weight exercises?

I could name exercises till I'm blue in the face that build high quality core strength and cardiovascular "endurance." I first need to know what kind of environment you're in and what purpose are do doing this for. Do you fight? Play a sport? Or it's just for kicks? and there's nothing wrong with just for kicks, core strength aka functional strength is relevant to anyone.

I stick almost completely to bodyweight, i have a pair of 25lb dumbbells i pick up once in a blue moon and an ab wheel.
right now i do a lil something like this:

circuit of doom 1:

pushup x 15
dip x10
jumping jack x 10

repeat 5 mins, rest 1 min

squat x 15
high knees x 10
burpees x10
lunges x 10

repeat 5 mins, rest 1 min

leg lift x15
v up x15
sit up x 15

repeat 5 mins, rest 1 min

run in place, rep type thing x 10 (every 4 foot falls equals 1)
jumping jacks x15
high knees x15

repeat 5 mins, rest for a while.

pullups til failure

Circuit of doom 2:

sprint 100 yards: 25 pushups, walk back to start x 2
sprint 100 yards, 25 squats, walk back to start x 2
sprint 100 yards, 25 situps walks back to start x 2
sprint 100 yards, 25 pushups, walk back to start x 2

begin with a hard mile to warm up, end with a jog mile to cool down.

any suggestions with those to work off of?

oh yea my purpose: when some ask why, I say why not.

Here is a little workout for you to try using just dumbbells and ab wheel. Do each of the 10 exercises for 30 seconds and then rest at the end of the round. Repeat for up to 5 rounds. Press ups, jump lunges, ab wheel roll out, sprawls, alternating dumbbell snatch, Single leg squats (30 seconds per leg) side plank (30 seconds per side) and bastards (burpee with a press up). Or you could split the workout in half and do 5 exercises at a time for a minute each.
