So I just put the finishing touches on my gaming PC and installed Windows 7. Now... I just need to know how to enable hyper threading on my PC??? I have Windows 7 and an Intel Core i5 650 3.2GHz processor. Also, could you folks be so kind as to telling me what the pros/cons of HT are?

Hyper Threading should be enabled already. To make sure of this, please open task manager and click on the Performance tab. Make sure you see 4 seperate CPU core windows. That would be 2 for your physical cores, and the other 2 are the virtual threads created by HT.
