Pretty sure its the Core 2 Duo. the P D's are a generation behind.

Core 2 Duo is much better.

Heck, a Core Duo is better than the Pentium D.

Yeah, for some reason the Pentium D series really lacks in performance, even to just Pentium 4's...

Isn't that why they released the C2Ds?

they released the C2D's because they needed to move on. to the point though, the e6300 is better.
