    Hi guys,

    My knowledge of computers is a bit limited so please bare with me. I recently found a computer for sale. the specs of wich you can see in my profile.

    In short it's an intel pentium 4HT(2.80GHZ). First of all, what does 'HT' mean. I only paid R500 South african(probably about $75) for it. Also i would like to know it's capabilities in terms of overclocking, maximum ram speeds etc.

    lastly i would like to know wether it is a good system or not.

    thanks for your time

    The Intel D865GBF was very good board, I built quite a few systems with that board. HT means the processor has HyperThreading.

    All the information for that board is located here;

    What processor you can use is going to be determined by the boards Altered Assembly (AA) number.

    Here is a link to the processors supported by that board, and the various AA numbers.

    You cannot overclock with that board.
