Infact I want to know whats the Difference Between Pentium-D and Pentium Dual-Core Processor, the link that you showed me is a comparison between Hyper Threading Technology with Dual Core.

PENTIUM -D, and PENTIUM - DUAL-CORE ( If its same, so why in different names?)

From wiki:

The Pentium D[2] brand refers to two series of dual-core 64-bit x86 processors with the NetBurst microarchitecture:

As i see it the pentium D uses the dual core technology.
But others say that the Core2 Duo  faster than pentium D.

Well i googled those links for you.
Now ive read them myself im a little confused myself too.

Here is the Intel comparison for the E2200 Dual Core and a Pentium D 960 (Top end processors in each class)
Notice he cache sizes are different with the dual core having a shared 1MB cache for each core and the Pentium D with 2x2MB caches for each core.

Which is better, I would go for the Pentium D.
 Also the Pentium D supports Intel® Virtualization Technology where the Dual core doesn't

Here is a comparison including the top end Core2Duo which is (if I'm reading your question right) not the type of CPU you're asking about.
