  1. Ignore the Pentium D series chips, they are old and based on the netburst archtecture.

    Core 2 is an older design from the current Intel offerings, but is much much more efficient than the old Pentrium D's and uses less power too.

    Graphics cards can be a tricky one, it all depends on your budget and what games you want to play.

  3. The Pentium D sucks. While the Core 2 Duo is a bit old it is still pretty capable despite it's age. The Pentium Ds are relics and should be left buried with the past.
