  1. Dual core is two CPU cores in one package so to speak.
    Core 2 Duo was the name of a processors marketed by Intel.
    e.g - you have:
    Core 2 solo (1 core)
    Core 2 Duo (2 cores)
    Core 2 Quad (4 cores)

    The market is now (Intel) Core i3,i5,i7 and (AMD) Athlon X2,3,4 Phenom,X2,3,4,6 and sempron X1
    (X2 = 2 cores)

    Build your self and you will get much better rig but if you can't build, the 2nd one is better for CPU, HD and RAM but you'll need a GPU.
