Its pretty expensive... Is it really that much better?
The reasons I chose the pentium D were:
a)Cheaper than Core 2 Duo
b)Higher clock speed (w/o overclocking)
c)(from what I've read) Modern Games run better with Faster single cores than slower dual Cores (or the same) but this has 2 fast cores to allow for games of today and future games utilizing dual core architecture.
Is this correct or is the slower core speed of the C2D really better than the Pentium D?
I'm a little reluctant to overclock for power, heat, and stability reasons.
