Welcome to the forum! What is your budget and as Timop mentioned, do you have any parts already with you or you need a complete new rig?

well just for a basic configuration a dual core would be good...... it will also save ur money...

and the difference between the two r
dual core's r the striped down versions of core2duo....with less cache, clock speed and front side bus(FSB)...

the dualcore processor does 2 * perforemence of a single processor .
the core 2 duo processor does 4 *performence of a single processor
so my choice is for core 2 duo

unless its a Pentium G6950 then go for the C2D.

G6950 is a i3 without hyper threading and a damn good choice :)

the E7500 would be the better choice between them
BUT
you would have to plan on decent video card (at least a GT240 or HD5770),2 more gb of ram
and at least a 450 watt good brand name Power Supply

going by US Dollars that would be about 250-300 more.

And with upgrades that would only be a "basic" system
You wouldnt get maxed out settings at high resolutions

Forgot 2 menton abt Grapix Card but aside frm Grapix card can u plz explain in Detail y da Dell machine with 2Xeon (3.2ghz) pros isnt better than E7500 imean it va got 2Dual core Pros as ive learnt from this From & FEw others its Intel which says u ll get abt 25% Difference in Dual Core comparin with Core2Duo while da Users says its abt 10 to 15 %. (keep in mind its abt tat comparison was abt 1 processer) while da machine ive mention have 2, wont it make it almost same or more in performance VS E7500(2.9ghz)??? cuz if igo with Dell 670 ialso dnt va 2 buy anew PSU which also would be atlest 500Watts.
Or Its Xeon Technology which isnt capable or compatible against E7500???
Plz Describe Me.

core 2 duo of course is better. core 2 are the next versions of the pentium dual cores.
pentium dual cores are so old, so as core 2 but atleast the core 2 duos are still very much in use by many.

The Dell Precision 670 uses Pentium 4 based Xeon processors
they are the same thing as a Pentium 4 3.4 hyperthreading cpu
I had a dell precision also which had the same cpus
a Core2Duo can easily outperform the two Xeon 3.4 cpus
they are only pentium 4
old technology
