    Best to worst:
    Core 2 Duo / Anthlon64x2
    Pentium D / Anthlon64
    P4 / Semperon

    core2duo is still the daddy at the moment imho.
    I've built two rigs with the E6600, one with the Core2Quad and two with AMD X2 4600+, all work pc's. AMD sadly lack behind the intels in performance.
    The entry level core2duo cpu (E6300) can outperform the AM2 5000+ and you can overclock it to hell and back. Cheaper too! :)
