    So, is this a good processor? I am guessing it is from what I have been reading.

    Also, does Pentium D mean Pentium Dual Core?

    I am taking it a Core 2 Duo would be much better as it is alot cooler and has more cache?

    Yes the E2160 is a good CPU generally.

    Also, does Pentium D mean Pentium Dual Core?
    No Pentium D was the first Intel Dual Core but it was based on 2x Pentium 4 CPUs making them hot and power hungry. They were phased ut some time ago.

    So, Pentium D = bad

    Pentium Dual Core = better

    The difference between a P4 / Pentium D and a Core CPU is about 60 degrees C. Anything based on the P4 architecture is going to run hot and slow in comparison. The P4s all run the old chip architecture which can not handle anywhere near the amount of simultaneous operations that a core 2 or a AMD Athlon64 can even in their single core iterations.

    The Core and Athlon64 range are simply optimized to handle more operations simultaneously and in a single clock cycle. If you cannot stretch to a Core 2 then buy an AMD Athlon64 X2. They are far better than their P4 equivalents, unless you are after a space heater I would not recommend a P4/Pentium D at all.

    @My220x - They are both bad, in relation to heat and speed. For the money go AMD or save and get a Core 2 Duo or Quad.

    Pentium D - Old technology. No longer available
    Dual Core - current technology
