You are underestimating the Core 2 Duo. Without any overclock the slowest Core 2 Duo (the E6300) is significantly faster than the fastest Pentium 4 in single-threaded games.
IMHO, I'd go with a higher end single core P4 800mhz fsb before I'd go with a duo core. You can get a P4 3.4 ghz 800mhz fsb with Hyper threading cheaper than you can get a slower duo core for. I'd venture a guess that it'll be faster for a single process (game) than a duo core would.

Really? That seems odd, not to mention mathmatically impossible for a 2.4ghz (or even the 2.6ghz) Core 2 Duo to out perform a P4 3.4 ghz processor. Even though the core 2 has a 1066 mhz fsb (BTW, is that combined, or individual speeds?), and more memory, I should think that the advantage would go to the higher speed of a P4 3.4 ghz 800mhz fsb. Does that make any sense to anyone besides me? I should think it'd be like a tricked out 6 cylinder turbo porsche racing a chevelle with a 400 big block in it.....the numbers favor the bigger engine.
Could anyone provide me with some links about the core 2 duo? TBH, I'm not really up to snuff with them as far as all their specs and whatnot
