As all the people here have been very helpful to me over the years and may know the Sims 2 games better than my son (who hates the Sims games), I now wonder if I should have hyperthreading disabled or not after all. I searched the Sims 2 web site and could not find a good answer to this, nor could I find the thread that said hyperthreading should be disabled, which I believe was there back when they just had the Base game and the University expansion. I have all the expansions and stuff packs.
Lastly - what is hyperthreading anyway? This is my first dual system and my first time with hyperthreading. I used to run an AMD Athlon 2500+. This new one is a Pentium 4- 3.0 - L2 cache 2 mb; 800 mhz FSB, with 1 gig dual channel ddr, coolmax 400 watt ps. The mobo is a gigabyte 865G, and I have 2 80gig Samsung Hds, a cd burner, DVD drive, floppy, and 7 system fans. Not counting the ps has dual fans. Edit: Oh, I also have a Nvidia Geforce (xfxforce) 7300 gt video card. My sound is onboard, and I'm running stereo Sony speakers.
