Default Processor Question

alright so i was wondering whats the differnce from

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 2.80 GHz

and

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 3.00 GHz w/HT Technology

and if there is much of a difference is it really worth it to spend more money to get the Hyper Threading one?

the latter is better, faster clock speed plus the HT, its defenantly worth the extra money

think of hyper threading as a dual processor emulator. Heres a little info on it:
