Windows 7: Need to upgrade processor and MOBO - do I really need hyper threading?

01 Nov 2011   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

That's the exact reason I justified my upgrade from the 9550. I've been busier than ever the last 6 months, and the idea of sitting in front of another computer when I get home (aside from off hours server updates) doesn't always appeal to me, when I could be cooking dinner or doing something else more productive. I finished the system with the plan of getting it just right and not upgrading it anymore for a while. I'm still hoping to get to BF3 soon, though.
