hi hope you can give me two minutes of your time.

i want to upgrade my cpu from a p4 3ghz ht cpu, to ae6600 dual core cpu.

now my question is... are the Hals the same for a ht cpu & a duel core cpu?
as far as the os (xp home ) is concerned & it should be just a plug & play job... :)

when I went from my pentium D to Q6600 I needed to reinstal windows so I shouldn't get your hopes up and start to back everything up.

@OP

I was talking to Sulu who suggested the 8400.
So don't shake your head at me! :p 

And as I said, when I went from my netburst Pentium D to my Core 2 Q6600 I needed to reinstall windows so you will probably need to something similar.

Just had a flashback.

I needed to reinstall windows for my mobo change, but not the CPU which followed the next month. you may be ok too.

Since the P4 had HT, you should be good with the multithreaded OS files. As long as the mobo doesn't change you should be OK. You may have to re-register Windows though ;)
