Core 2 Duo or Pentium D?

Hey ppl,
U seem to be a knowledgeable lot! Just wondered what the best performing processor would be out of these:

Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core 3.20GHz FSB 800 2 X 2Mb Cache LGA 775 65nm (£135)


Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13ghz - Skt775 Fsb1066 2mb Cache 65nm

Thanks for any views you can give

  1. C2D E6400.

    No futher explaination needed. =)

    Seriously, given the choices, I'd stay far, far away from the PD 940, if the E6400 is available.

    The Core 2 Duo CPUs simply destroy the Pentium D line, without even trying.
  2. E6400 no :?: about it, probably best $/performance cpu as of today
