VTS - hardware assisted virtualization for use in Virtual Machines such as Microsoft VirtualPC. Basically boosts performance to bring them up to a better spec than it could otherwise simply being run as a standard Windows program. That is, the hardware of your computer that you use now will drive the virtual machine itself, as opposed to it being driven by Windows on its own. If Windows ultimately controls it, it'll get the same performance and rights-of-way as every other program on the computer does now, whereas the VTS enabled processor will be able to drive it directly.

There is no dual-core CPU that has hyperthreading, so your last question is not applicable. However, if there was a dual-core CPU with hyperthreading, the answer would be no; a native quad-core CPU would be much more powerful than a dual-core CPU with hyperthreading, just as a native dual-core CPU is much more powerful than a single-core CPU with hyperthreading.
Also, two games at once? How do you pull that off? Do you have two keyboards, two mice, and four arms? You'd also have to somehow get the computer to know which set of input devices controlled each game.

Anyways back to my original question. So the quad with HT is better. I have heard HT is pretty much a failure and it is risky to try it. Has anyone else heard this? Is it hard to find parts compatible with this CPU if it is kinda rare?

As all Core i7s have hyperthreading, all parts that are compatible with a Core i7 are also compatible with its hyperthreading.
