Woah I didn't know that. I was planning on breaking down my old machine for spare parts and installing my XP home on the new machine. I guess it would benefit me to go and pick up XP pro to take advantage of the Intel HT. Hmm, doesn't XP pro come with a boat load of services, etc that I wont need- how do I know what services I do and do not need. If I got a copy of XP Pro I'd want it to be spick and spam, with no extraneous junk that I wont use.

well, im sure they will release an service pack to be able to utlilise H/T eventually.

as for bloatware, XP itself is bloatware however you can easily configure during install, or even run a dual OS system

my xp home utilizes hyperthreading

Unless I'm being deceived, tech support at HP told me in the beginning that nothing special needed to be done for my system to utilize the HT on my 3.06GB Pentium 4. I just checked device mgr. in control panel, and it lists two identical cpu's. The same result using "system inf" under accessories. Unless they're scamming me big time, I'd say XP Home ver. supports and utilizes Hyperthreading.
Try Intel's page:

Hey, you had me going there for a minute. I also vaguely remember that Vegas capitalized on the hyperthreading as well. The Vegas part would need to be confirmed indepedently, though.

Hmm can anyone confirm this? I'd love to be able to build a new machine and not have to buy another OS. Especially beings the "upgrade" for XP PRO being $179 retail. UGH That money could be better spent towards my paired Corsair 512 sticks! :)

Peter, have you checked that link- it does list both home and professional as supporting HT. Could it be a typo? How can we substanciate this?

My understanding was that XP - no matter the flavor - supported HT. True multi-processors - that is a different story.

RAID

Do you guys recommend the RAID-0 configuration over the standard prim - sec, mast. - slave setup? Do you notice the speed increase?
Thanks

I have the same display as you do, Glenn. Its not one of the higher models unfortunately, but I think its alright for the price. How do you like yours?

Forgot to mention my speakers: a pair of Mackie HR626s

Sounds like a fun machine to build, Glenn.

moving up

Hey, if anyone just upgraded to a new system and would like to sell their old one, send me a message (buckskinslim@earthlink.net) or give me a call --(970-209-4310). I'm moving up from a dual P3-500/512MB pc100 system. I typically buy one or two generations behind the bleeding edge. I may miss out on the advantages of hyperthreading, but I'll get it next time.
