lol demalii i just like u with no movie quote
but i mean what Elbatrop1 said... if you are going to be using it to liek create stuff like design's and like all that other stuff then a HT should be good but if you are going to be doing a lot at once like having multiple programs open at once, doing like 5 things at once, then i would get the xeon. But the only thing with a xeon, is you need a lot of memory. Like around 1-3 gigs of memory. So if ur gonna be doing a lot, then get the xeon but just saying, since its 2 cpu's its gonne be more money for the processors, motherboard, and your gonna need more memory so just for the board and processors, im gonna guess (note: ONLY GUESSING, IF IM WRONG DONT FREAK OUT) around 500 dollars where you can get a 2.8 with HT and a board (which i just upgraded to today.. well just ordered it) about 300 dollars. I got a ASUS p4p800s which is a very good board.
