Cool core 2 duo e6600 vs pentium d 950

ok i can only see 2 differences in between the two processors. i am getting a complete new overhaul on my system but i dont know which processor to get. the core 2 e6600 is a 2.4 with a 1066 fsb and the d950 is a 3.4 with a 800 fsb, would love some justified feedback and why. is there really $100 or more difference in the chips?

Are you on crack? The Core 2 Duo beats the crap out of ANY processor out there today, get the core 2 duo, it is not even a choice. People get to hung up on numbers *sigh*

Pentium D is on quite a...huge par between it and the conroe, its more like 3 generations older than what a Core 2 Dou is.... deffinantly Core 2 dou is the winner, lol..
