I want to build a new PC with FreeBSD, which processor
is best for FreeBSD.

Intel builds processors and motherboards, which gave me
a feel of good performance between this two elements.

Intel has something called Hyper-Threading Technology,
Which turbo charges your PC to respond to today's
multitasking lifestyle.

Can FreeBSD take benefice from this?

AMD only build processor but according to his web site,
it gave better performance.

In the AMD Athlon XP Processor Performance Benchmark
says that th Pentium 4 has better performance with
Hyper-Threading disabled.
