Yes, I understand that hyper-threading is Intel tech.... and that is what my CPU is (Intel Pentium D 930 Presler 800MHz FSB LGA 775 Dual Core Processor Model BX80553930).

Would the regular XP work on this setup?

I wasnt too concerned over his comments about 7.1 surrounds. I dont need more than 2.1 for my parents here.

Sorry my bad, so used to talking about AMD, that I... that I... have been brainwashed.

Back to what he said HT emulates having 2 CPU's so then you will have 4. Depends what $40 is worth but the performance gain is negliable.

XP would defiantly work. I have the AMD 3000 on 32bit windows and it will work better than 64bit for me.

I remembered why there is a performance drop now. If you get a true 64bit game than there will be a performance increase but ever other game will have to 'emulate' 32bit, which takes away FPS.

Okay, so, all I need to clarify now.... is will all of this work together? Or am I going to have issues once it all arrives.

I just need to get my family something extremely fast and that will give them no problems a couple months down the road.

This will work 100%...... for over a year with no special casualties [unless you'r family likes to downloads viruses?] and this system could even survive 4 years if they take care of it.... it WILL Work with Win XP!!!

BTW, I pmed you so check you'r user control panel.. [the maker of this post, forgot how to spell you'r name, cryptic?]
