There is not a great deal of difference if this is for a game it should be ok if your graphics card is up to snuff and you meet the ram requirements.

✔ Best Answer
The D820 is not a Core Duo, it's a Pentium D--basically two Pentium 4s in one package.

A 2.8GHz Pentium D is much slower than a 2.6GHz C2D. An application that requires a 2.6GHz C2D will run slowly on a 2.8GHz PD.

Socket 939 | Dual-core Opteron 185 @ 3.2GHz | 4GB | 1.0TB | Win7 x64
GeForce GTX 460 1GB | X-Fi Ti Pro | A8N32-SLI Deluxe | Antec P182

if you already own this computer....try it, that will tell you if it works. BUT for video editing you can't have a fast enough processor, enough ram or enough video......the more you have the faster the editing process and rendering graphics will go. Along with high end games.....video editing is another project that demands a powerful system. It can be done on a slower system, but its time consuming......

My aunt uses Adobe Premiere elements, we tried it with a P4, 4 gigs of ram and a decent video card..........was not satisfactory, ran much better off a dual core chip, better still on a quad core.
