Is the extra gigahert worth it? (Core 2 Duo) ...
So, I'm considering a computer upgrade for christmas and my first thought is about the upcoming quad core processors, but then I heard how expensive they are (:O) so I decided I would stick to Core 2 Duo. So I'm looking at the availiable versions and I think I have narrowed it down to the E6300 and the E6600. The E6600 is £100 (around $190) more than the E6300, but it has an extra 2mb of L2 cache and almost and extra gigahert. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to processors, so could someone please tell em weather those two features are worth the extra money.
EDIT: I would also consider the E6400.
