i'm building a gaming pc, with a great video card, (almost 1000 stream processors, 1 gig of DDR5 memory), it will also have about 4 or 5 gigs of ram. What i am asking is which processor i should get. I am intending to use this pc for gaming. Not like video editing and stuff... just gaming. So one of the processors is default clocked at 3.0Gghz, and has a 4mb cache. The other is default clocked at 3.3Gghz and has a 2mb cache. I am aware that i can overclock them both. The one with the larger cache and lower clock is more expensive. So i am wondering which is better... to have a lower clock and higher cache, or a higher cache and lower clock? Oh, and they are both dual core. I am not exactly building a pc from scratch right now, i'm just upgrading the major components of my current motherboard, so my only socket option is 775, and those are the two best processors that my motherboard supports.
by the way, here are the links to the processors of you need more details:
3.3Gghz with 2mb cache: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=6689692
3.0Gghz with 4mb cache: http://cgi.ebay.com/Intel-Core-2-Duo...item2a049ca7f9
Just so you know, i am not at all worried about their prices. I am perfectly willing to buy the more expensive one if it is better. I'm just asking not to base your opinion on my wallet.
