Tomshardware.com? While it doesn't matter to me which you choose, any dual core with 64-bit would be nice if you are sticking to Windows. I've met a few that seem to not understand that in just a few months their pricey top of line machine could be passed up by some now run of the mill box that cost 1/3 the money. There's a FREE lesson there if you don't get upset about this.
Then again some will get upset that I bring up that discussion.
I thinking about building up a high end workstation for mainly digital imaging purposes. Of course this system will initially be running XP Pro and eventually Vista when available and stable.
I'm trying to decide which processor would give me the biggest bang for the buck. The Dual Core Xeon processors are a little pricy so I thought maybe going with a lesser priced Xeon that's not Dual Core. So that brings me to this question:
What advantages would a "non-dual core" Xeon with HT have over a Dual Core Pentium D with HT?
