Isn't the P4 dead yet?

With Intel shipping desktop core duo chips with more speed and a lot less watts, wouldn't that be what to start with this time?

Lower end P4s are in their twilight. With dual core technology costing less and less, it's obvious that's the way to go. I just built a system (last week) with an 805 Smithfield and 512 MB. It buzzes. It keeps up with my 640 P4 w 2 gigs and can do just as much. The 805 costs 1/3 as much these days.
Don't get me wrong: I love my Prescott! I'd leave anything under a 6 series alone and go Dual Core.
