Which is better intel pentium or intel pentium dual core?

I am completely new to this :??:. I am trying to swap 2 computer's processing units, and I'm not sure which one should go in my computer i use the most often, they are the same (Intel Pentium), but one is a dual core and one isn't. And if the dual-core one is faster, how should I go about replacing them? Will it delete my files? (Hey, I'm 11, be glad I have good grammar :na: )

  1. depends on which generation pentium both are(the dual core probably has better architecture as single cores are very dated). as for replacing them, it depends on the motherboard socket.
  2. Look at the socket on the motherboards, are they the same?

    If they are the same, you can swap them, and you will lose NO data.
