Default P4 vs P4 ee

Is there anyone here who has used a pentium 4 ht and pentium 4 ht extreme edition. I was wondering what comparisons can be made. Are the EE's really that much ? Would it be worth the money to go the EE route instead of getting a 3.6 ht.

If I were going to spend that kind of money, I would go for a high end AMD Athlon 64 or FX processor. The EE's are great, but they are a little pricey for what you get. The Pentium 4 EE is basically just Intel's response to the Athlon 64/FX chips for gamers.

I agree, you'd be better off with an Athlon 64, preferrably in socket 939

indeed, and for the money you could probably get a 3800+ or even an FX-53. and it would probably be faster than the 3.6

ATM, I think Intel are developing their next CPU, in response to the Athlon 64's
