horent135 1,052 224 February 16, 2016 at 11:43 AM
I3-4170 @ 3.7GHz (2 core, 2 logicial (HT))
I5-2400 @ 3.1GHz(4 core, non-HT)
I5-3479 @ 3.2GHz(4 core, non-HT)

I will mainly use computer to surf the web and watch HD video, blu-ray quailty, and youtube.. Which CPU is better for me? Also need to boot faster too...

Can't decide if I need logicial HT or not.

What's the price of all those? Any of them will do what your wanting. In fact they are all kind of overkill for that use. HD video is not considered a demanding task in 2016.

For fastest boot put your OS on an SSD.
