for gaming, Hypertransport makes more of a differenec. games don't need to support it.
however games need to be specially made to take advantage of multithreading, which so far, I don't think any are

And just to clarify again, comparing Hyper Transport and Hyper Threading is like comparing apples and oranges and saying which one is better at being itself. Please stop comparing these two for a clear picture. They are both things that the companies designed to make their processors work a little faster.

The DDR 2 isn't being fully utilized and poorly conveyed in terms of 'fastness'. AMD chose not to use DDR2 because it doesn't need it. PC 3200 is completely made for the AMD setup, which is ALL better for gaming.
