Well i would say the first but the second is LGA 775 which is a newer socket and alot of the time have larger l2 cache. They will both have hyperthreading and as seeing the LGA 775 is newer i would have to reccomend that one...unless there both soccket 775 ? if so then get the first one. Oh and some friendly advice..Your not looking for an intel chipset here your looking for an INTEL CPU chipset and CPU are totally different things matey.

Welcome to the forums.

Please provide some more info on the CPUs you're wanting compared. I'm not aware of a 3.3E that's on the market.

In general, though, if it's purely a choice between a S478 and a S775, the 775 is most likely the better bet due to the newer technology.

In a nutshell, HT allows a CPU to more effectively handle multitasking. Check out this post for a brief discussion on HT enabled vs. disabled in addition to reading the info on the link above. In most cases, HT is a beneficial technology and well worth having.

If you are considering upgrading your CPU, I'd recommend opting for one of the latest 6** series. Aswell as HT they also have 64-bit extensions via EM64T, 2MB of L2 cache as opposed to 512KB and EIST which helps keep the thermal output of the CPU down by automatically lowering the multiplier when the CPU isn't being used much.

However, this would more than likely require a new motherboard and RAM and maybey even graphics card as you would need an LGA775 motherboard to use these newer CPU's.

5XX chips have 1MB of L2 cache not 512KB.

If you didn't want to go for the 6XX series CPUs you could give the 5X1 series a look. They are also 64Bit CPUs but lack the 2MB cache. If you can swing it I'd go with the 6XX.
