CPUs are not always ranked up by their speeds. the Sandy Bridge CPUs are much newer and have Hyperthreading

The Pentium Dual Core CPUs are obsolete and weaker than the modern CPUs
Actually, depending on what Pentium you are talking about since there is a Pentium D and a Pentium Dual Core which are 2 totally different processors.
PassMark - Pentium Dual-Core E5700 @ 3.00GHz - Price performance comparison

PassMark - Intel Pentium D 3.00GHz - Price performance comparison

I was running a Pentium Dual Core E5200 in my HTPC and upgraded to a Core2Duo E6750 and the HTPC was was the same speed.
I didn't pay for an upgrade, just swapped processors from another machine. now the HTPC is the same speed but generates a little more heat due to the Core2Duo running hotter than the Pentium Dual Core.

btw, a Core i3 2.3ghz is slightly faster (10%) than a Pentium Dual Core 2.6ghz, you probably won't even notice the difference in speed.
And an i5 2.27Ghz is 40% faster than the Pentium Dual Core.

AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-75 VS Intel Core 2 Duo T6600
Since I couldn't get specs on the AMD Turion in terms of cache, etc. (the Intel one in the title is 2M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB) I couldn't figure out which is the better processor. Does anyone know? Is there also a website I can reference that can compare them?

Upgrading from a dual core to a quad core!
Hi all! I am not computer illiterate. I have a question for you. I am switcing from an AMD dual core 2.4GHz to a Phenom 9750 Quad core. Changing out the heatsink and fan also. Can I just swap out the CPU's and restart Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Or do I have to do a complete reinstall of the same OS?...
