Pentium duals are horrible in performance! This is a very good CPU that probably does beat a Pentium Dual. Just what I think.
Pentium Ds and P4s are terrible, yes. But the Pentium Dual Cores, which are basically C2Ds with 1MB of L2 cache, are awesome and overclock like crazy.

I have a deal brewing on...wait for it...craigslist <shocking, I know>...

an E2180 for $30 if a guy no shows for it on Friday, which he has no showed already, this is the same deal I posted a week or so ago, $150 for a Gigabyte mobo, 8400GS (bleh), 80GB hdd, DVD burner, Rosewill 400w psu, 2GB OCZ Platinum, and the E2180, I'm thinking seriously about the whole package, but the E2180 is definite if the dude doesn't show up...
