Has anyone any views on the Pentium D 820. Is this a good processor?

it's ok, if it's for gaming, you would be better off with an AMD 64 X2...

I'd rather wait until the Core Duo becomes available in its desktop form. Won't be too long now. The 8 series is very fast, but the Duo is already slightly quicker and a lot less power hungry.

I aggree with ade.h if your going for an intel processor wait a bit longer the core duo will be a better chip.

The mid-to-long-term plan is for the Core family to expand and replace all forms of Pentium. In fact, Intel has already talked about where Core will go next and it has apparently got AMD on the hop.
