Get the E6400 for the 8X multi so you don't need to go above 500 FSB to hit 3.5 GHz

are you getting new RAM and a new video card?

if so, then the Core 2 Duo would be the better option. DDR2 and PCI-E cards are cheaper than AGP cards and DDR1 RAM.

if not, socket 939 still supports DDR1, and AGP. since you have a Pentium 4 2.4, that would mean you still have DDR1, and most likely an AGP card (unless it is an onboard GPU)
