if your mobo will support it, then yes it, id get it. but I dont think that there are any HT p4's out there with HT that have 533mhz FSB, there probably is some, but just make sure that when you find a proc you like, tells us here at CF and we will tell you if it's gonna work or not

ahhh good looking out aces., hpyer threading is where your operation system i belive makes it as though there is two processors its supposed to allow you to run multiple applacations quicker and some games and applications that support it are quicker i belive of course the processors has to suport it such as those p4s

Well learn about the technology before you spread your "humble opinion," Please. Hyper-Threading allows one processor to execute two threads for every clock cycle because it "emulates" two processors. (One physical, one logical) For multithreaded applications, this means a considerable performance boost. Unfortunately there aren't many right now, but we should see an increase of them in the near future.
