Default What is HT on CPU's?

just look at CPU's and was wondering what the HT means? Is it better to have higher MHz or lower?

and what about L1 Cache and L2 Cache?

Thanks a bunch

put simply HT is hyper-threading and its old news lol

if u really want to no more look here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper-threading
but i wouldnt reccomend buying a P4 with HT id go with an AMD or even better a C2D

if ur on budget go 4 AMD if u have a bit more cash go 4 Core2Duo

I was just look at this AMD CPU for 939 socket and was just comparing to others. And was wondering about the stats on it.

Eh, don't bother upgrading a socket 939 system, it's pretty much dead now. Socket 939 prices are ridiculously high because they're trying to phase it out, so everyone uses AM2.

If you really want to upgrade, you could just get this, it's only a 200 MHz difference for a lot cheaper:

I plan on OC, so maybe I'll be able to OC this past the 2.6GHz
