The Pentium D was the last dying gasp of Netburst and the Pentium 4 line. Without a doubt, a Core series processor is the better choice. With the memory controller downstream of the processor (in the G/MCH), having a 1066MHz bus (versus the 800MHz of the Pentium D) is very significant in the performance equation.
