    Default There is no huge difference,

    If you are on core 2 duo, stick to it,specially e7200:Coz it is the best of core 2 duo
    And ya if you really wanna good gaming then please go for core i 5 instead of core i3,as c2d is equal or you can say there is no such a big difference.

    depends on the $$ you got. Core i3 is way way faster than Core 2 duos, but their motherboards are a bit costly and DDR3 memory is also a bit costly. If you cant afford the i3, go for AMD as its much better VFM.

    About the graphics card, what PSU you got ?

    FWIW, I'm using an AMD since 4+ years. No issues at all.

    That is not the case with the newer chips. They are pretty good, run cool and efficiently

    Core2Duo maybe be a proven warhorse but it is still an old warhorse.
