Myrkat, what is your conclusion on performance with and without HT enabled? As I said elsewhere, if anything I think that generally everything is a little *faster* withOUT HT, but that may be subjective
What's your take on it?
I haven't done any DVD encoding/burning yet, but I have played BF1942 (invisible textures still occur, but doesn't seem "as bad" as before) and it runs a bit better, I must say... like you said, Oliver, it's just a "feeling" but it does seem somewhat quicker. I typically play the DesertCombat (currently on 0.35) mod only, too.
So at the very least, doing day-to-day stuff, the HT difference is minimal. I haven't put the system through rigorous use, however, and when I do I'll post an update.
One thing HT allowed (or improved) was ALT-TABing out of intense games to do OS stuff in the background... was very quick while things were running. I'll try that as soon as I install another game (BF doesn't like ALT-TAB, but the couple times I did manage to get to the destop, it seemed more sluggish than when HT was enabled - no biggie).
