    Core 2 Duo Upgrade

      Newbie here. I came here looking for an answer on upgrading my processor. Im looking at the 2.66ghz 6mb cache 1333 mhz e8200 cpu to replace my 6300 1.8mhz core 2 duo. For an extra 20 dollars I can go to (if i can) a core 2 quad 2.33ghz 4mb cache 1333mhz fsb. The way I'm  reading this is the core 2 duo is a better cpu than the quad core. My question is are these cpu's interchangable with my 6300 and is the core 2 duo a better cpu than the quad core. Thanks in advance...
