I think I just realized something about a pc I built a while back. Here is a link to the motherboard and CPU I bought for it.

Here is my question. Does this motherboard support dual core processing and if not did I just waste some money on the processor? Please explain. Thanks!

According to the specs on the MB the "Pentium D" CPU is a supported model.

Yes, but shouldn't it say next to hyperthreading that it also supports dual core or is that essentially what a Pentium D is?

By definition, Pentium-D cpus are dual core.
