Yes HT enabled will cause certain games ie; bf3, metro 2033 to stutter and skip. I know personally because I bought an i7 then had to turn off HT to enjoy certain games which is why I returned it to buy an i5. Thank you frys for your 15 day return policy and no stocking fees. I would not pay the extra $100 if you only play games when that $100 could be used for a better gnu, ram, ssd, ect. The i7 to me is more of a bragging rights kinda of chip since the i5 will perform wonderfully at 4.5-4.8 ghz and meet 90% of your computing needs. Hope this helped good luck.
