  1. Most of those links are so old the page is no longer available. But you can use yahoo to do a search: benchmarks pentium4 D versus quad core.
  2. Pentium 4 >> Pentium D >> Core 2 Duo >> Core 2 Quad

    Pentium D was disappointing in my personal opinion, I ran circles around my friend's Pentium D and I only had an AMD 64 3200+...so even when they were rampant, they were weak in my opinion.

    You're better off with an AMD X2 or X4
  3. http://www.cpubenchmark.net/common_cpus.html

    best link ever

    that answers all my questions

    Now I can just type the ebay name onto the search bar on that site and get a good idea.

    good
  4. Heck my Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz outperformed the fastest of the Intel Pentium® D processors at 3.73GHz in all but a few benchmarks and that processor was faster than any Intel Pentium 4 processors.
