I'd really like to get the 3ghz P4 with the 800mhz fsb, but the 2.8 with the 800mhz fsb is quite a bit cheaper. What I want to know is if the only difference in these processors is the clock speed? What are the differences if any?
Clock speed. As far as I know they should both have HT, but maybe not. These are the only two things that could account for such a price difference. Oh and they may come with different heatsinks, but that's not really a purchasing related issue...
To err is human... to really screw things up you need a computer!
I also think that both 2.8Ghz and 3.0Ghz P4s with 800Mhz have HT enabled... I think the price difference is mainly because the 3.0Ghz is currently top-of-the-line, though not for long... The 3.2Ghz will be coming soon, and the prices should drop again.
