Default 1mb Cache or 512kb Cache???

Which is better , I'm looking into buying a new AM2 since the price drops started today yay!! well I wanted to know if it'll make a big difference to get an X2 processor with 512kb, or 1mb per core. I am a big overclocker, well I have to be right now I got a low end cpu

If I don't overclock when I first get it I will later on so which would be better for me ?

Sup bass, rofl.

Definitely get 1MB cache, cache is an important factor in choosing a processor. More cache = less fetching code from the system memory = faster.

Get a 1MB, it's always better off with cache.

Tell me, since we both live in Québec, do you know if local shops have them already? It's been a little while now that I haven't touched the shops lolz
