Default Processor Question

alright so i was wondering whats the differnce from

Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 2.80 GHz


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

Core 2 Duo E6400, DFI Infinity 975X/G, 2x 512mb DDR2 667mhz, Albatron 7900gt, WD 200gb SATA, Samsung DVD-RW, Silverstone ST-50EF 500w PSU.

think of hyper threading as a dual processor emulator. Heres a little info on it:,00.asp
