which one of these processors will perform better if i'm to play games and run applications most of the time??????
does anyone know if the 3.0ghz supports Hyper-Threading technology?????

hence i'm running with intel 875 chipset, 1024 DDR RAM DDR333 pc 2700, ati 9000 pro all in wonder, creative audicy 2 platinum

any comments will be grateful

The 3GHz or even the new 3.2GHz with the 800MHz bus are substantially faster. Even the 2.8GHz with hyperthreading is faster than the older 3.06.

the 3.0 with 800FSB, will perform much better.

Go for the 800. I recently bought the 2.4/533 and am regretting not spending a bit mopre for the 800. Actually,Diesee responded to my thread recommending the 800 but being the miser that I am I went for the 533 which was on offer at aria for £116 which was a good price three wks ago. Its now gone down in price inevitably.

the 3.06 does have hyper treading technology so what are you on about that the 2.8 is faster than the 3.06????????

The newer processors have the 800MHz bus too. See the link for performance histograms.

The old 2.8 did not have hyperthreading, the new one does, as do the new 2.6 and 2.4 GHz chips.

I have 3.06 cpu, with Audigy 2 platinum, 1024 ddr and Hercules 9800 pro. I've been having LOTS of problems with games locking up. I'm not saying that it's due to the cpu, I've changed my graphics card for my old Prophet 8500LE and it plays ok (ie, no lockups). I THINK there's some kind of conflict, maybe with the Audigy 2, so I'm going to replace the 9800 and remove the Audigy (I've got on board sound on my mobo) and see what happens. Hope that's of interest to you.
