    Hi
    Is it worth spending the extra $ on an Intel HT CPU and a motherboard to
    suit?? In real life terms for me - internet browsing, word, excel, digital
    camera etc - no games, no DVD player is it worth worrying about?? What does
    HT do??

    I am in the process of replacing my faithful Celeron 700 which does all the
    above OK. The 800Mhz FSB P4 2.8HT is only about $25 dearer than the 533mhz
    FSB P4 2.8. The motherboard differential is about $40.00. Is the FSB speed
    difference really noticeable - I am not a power user by any means.

    For my usage would I benefit???

    Thanks
    Andrew

    nope
    although don't 'not' get it, i wouldn't spend anything extra for it, it's
    only of use if you run programs made for it really
    most stuff isn't
