    What is with this trend of "what is better [insert random hardware]!!?!?!" threads? There are TONS of hardware review sites. The Dual Core machine will outperform the single core machine for a webhosting environment. Google.

    In this case the difference will be almost non existant. The Pentium D never really had much of a realworld permormance advantage over the later P4s becuase of heat issues. In some test they couldn't perform as well under stress as the older P4s. The sole reason the Pentium D was even created was as a marketing ploy to take some thunder away from the Athlon X2s.

    If you can choose between a PD and an X2 take the X2. The core duo is intell first real upgrade in a processor in years.

    ... What crevice did you pull that out of? The Pentium D is a great dual core chip. I have a few setup in the DC and they run beautifully. That said, yes, the X2 and Core Duo are impressive lines.
