    My system consists of Asus P4P800SE
    Pentium4,2.4B
    Radeon9800Pro
    1.5Gb,pc2700 Kingston

    Recently built system,running for a few months,no problems playing games,using system in a single application enviorment works fine.But when I edit music and also have applications running,my system starts to slowdown abit.I have been informed through this forum and others that a P4 with Hyper Threading would solve my issue.
    Now,I have just spent $$ on upgrading memory,and don't want to purchase pc3200 memory with DDR2 boards becoming mainstream soon.

    So I have 2 questions:
    (1)Should I get a P4 3.06,533 bus,Hyper T or a 3.0c,800 bus,Hyper T.
    (2)Will the pc2700 memory be at all compatible with the 3.0c,allowing the cpu to run on 533 instead of 800

    Maybe I know the answer already,but I want the experts advice ;)My mainboard supports Hyper T,800 bus,and pc3200 memory.TY
