Default dc chips

I havent been following the latest hardware over the summer. As I recall from the begining every one was impressed by the pentium D. Does it still stack up to the Athlon 64 X2? Which one has the best performace, and which chip is best value?

I'd go for the 3800+ X2 and overclock it.

Best Value = X2
Best Perfomance = X2
