    From the benchmarks I've seen, there are certain apps that do benefit from HT, but I don't see it as a con personally. The i5-750 is already pretty quick. Put it this way, I myself would not pay the extra £65 or so to go one step up to a i7-860 just to get HT.

    it's a perfect gamer's CPU, it replaces E8400.

    whether it's a con, it's all about what you do with your computer, whether you do a lot of encoding or simply game.

    i personally like the idea of hyperthreading, so i wish i had gotten the i7 860.

    it might benefit games in the future, RE5 supports as many cores as you want by using n-1 (n being the number of cores) cores so a triple core would leave one core for the OS, quad would use 3 cores and hyperthreading would use all 4 cores because it would be fooled into think there was 8 cores so it would use 4 physical and 3 logical cores. xbitlabs got a 50FPS increase on medium quality settings just by overclocking their i7 :O

    Personally for me it would come down to what money you want to spend. got an extra £60? Get the i7860, rather spend it on a GPU or more ram? Get the i5750
