Both would be fairly useless, your better off upgrading your system to a AMD am3 build tbh. What are the other specs of your system?

Pentium D is better for latest games. P4@3.4GHz will only lead in single thread applications.

Welcome to the forums.

Of the two, the Pentium D is much better.
Still, it is several generations out of date and extremely slow by current standards.
Even a budget Athlon II x2 could easily outperform it...

If you're playing older games both are ok, but the Pentium D is what you want to be using (you won't even need house heating during winter either ;) ). For newer games you're pushing your luck trying to get good performance out of either. What are you intending to play?

The Pentium D. In fact the Pentium D is 65nm and a pretty good overclocker.

The gaming benchmarks on this site show the Pentium 4 performing better than the D.
