Core 2 duo,it's faster then Pentium D. Pentium D is more outdated hardware.

Pentium D is what you call a budget processor and is only capable of basic stuff, emailing, surfing, facebook games at a push, i'd go for the core 2 duo, but if you really want some decent performance, i'd probably go for the core 2 quad, that's if you can still get hold of them

what motherboard do you have?
If you post the exact model of it i can help you to choose a good processor for you.

Be careful because processors could be not compatible with your botherboard due to steppings and revisions. For example, i have an ASUS P5LP-Le motherboard which supports Socket LGA 775 Core 2 Duo e6x00 CPUs, but for example it supports only e6700 rev A intead of both rev A and B.

Pentium Dual Core are very weak dual core processors, so i suggest you to go for a Core 2 Duo processor (which is a good dual core processor): a Core 2 Duo @1.5 GHz is 50% faster than a Pentium D @3.0 GHz. But don't expect extreme performance in games with it. For gaming it is a decent CPU, but not really fast to run games smoohtly... A Core 2 Quad will work really better.

True telling us what motherboard goes a long way in determining what processor you want to get... unless you're considering the processor first, than motherboard.

At any rate given the information posted, yeah, the Core 2 Duo is the better way to go. It's the faster, better chip.

A core2quad is a processor but has 4 cores instead of 2. The pricing I can't really say though for were you live but it's more expensive.
