Default Pentium D (3.0ghz) Dual Core Processor vs AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Dual Core Processor

As said in the title, which one would be a better processor, the Pentium D (3.0ghz) Dual Core Processor or the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Dual Core Processor? Could anyone also list the pros and cons of both processors.

P.S. I want to use the processors for Gaming / Surfing the Net.

the 4400+ by far. the 4400+ comprises 2x3700+ cores each of which could outstrip a single core 3.0ghz pentium 4 considerably. as the dual core is obviously 2x3.0ghz p4 cores (presumably prescott cores unless this is a presler) the 3700+ which is equivelant or better than a 3.7ghz prescott will anhialate it. there are no real advantages to the pentium D's

The Athlon X2 3800+ would own the Pentium 840, probably the 940 too.

On Tomshardware they have a new CPU chart that shows all the CPUs and how they perform. The 4400+ beat not only all the Pentium Ds but also both Pentium Extremes in mostly everything. AMD all the way

*DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D
*HIS Hightech X1900XT 512MB w/ Zalman VF900 (Core: 690Mhz, Mem: 1500Mhz)
*G.Skill 1GB DDR 400
