Default Re: X2 4200+ or Core 2 Duo ....

I'm not degrading the X2 at all I was merely displaying info about the c2d since most of the people who posted seemed to be recommending the X2. I just provided him with info and my opinion as you all are doing. As for Meithan, a 70% performance gain is enormous, absolutely behemoth and I don't know where you got that number. the E4300 seems to be designed around maximizing overclockability and can easily get the 70% performance gain if you include that. If he's not going to overclock then the 4200 X2 is fine and would beat the E4300.
