Hello,
is core2 duo is better than i3 processor

The slowest i3 will beat the fastest Core 2 Duo, not to mention be cheaper, run cooler, and use less energy.

I'm going to vote depends on the model.

Look at the Photoshop results. The E8600 is only just behind the i3 530. If you compare the E8500/8600 to one of the lower i3s, then it will be faster. The i3 is generally the better chip.

The 530 is the lowest i3.

Ahhh, so it is. I don't normally look at the lowend CPUs. I3 all the way then. The fastest of the C2D can't match the i3. (the C2Qs are another story.)

if your out buying chips then go for the i3. But if you just thought "hey, u could get one of those C2Q" lol dont for that get an i5 :D  i just hope those C2 go down in price then they would sell like crazy

no kidding, I think it's outrageous that you still can't get a c2q for under $120. no Q6600 or q8200 is worth that much.

They're not being made anymore, so to some people stuck on a 775 socket, it is worth it. :) 

Stores don't have an endless supply and intel never sold em too cheap to begin with. =P

And they still make a type of Pentium?!? what? If C2D's and Q's were re made as a "budget" CPU they would really give AMD a run for there money :)

I think that lga 1156 pentium is basically an i3 without hyperthreading
