I'm not sure you can fit a E4500 in a board designed for a p4....Dunno without looking it up. But anyways, from what I understand the p4 is not a true dual core processor. It uses hyper threading that basically splits the processing into two different threads making it look like dual core. The core 2 duo is a true multi core processor. What motherboard are you wanting to do this on?

Personally I would stick with the P4, compare the specs and read the feedback at the attached links it may help you decide;

oh - yeah, i did forget to mention that my mobo is socket 775, same as both cpu's,

i know the p4 is single core and uses hyperthreading,

i was wondering if there would be any benefits/advantages in swapping to the E4500,
