Post New processor

Hey. Basically i have decided that i am going to sell my lcd screen so that i can throw a away my p4 3.gz processor. But the question that now remains is this. What processor. Is better the e4400 or the e4500? Keep in mind i dont over clock. And what i mainly do on my computer is video editing and special effects and using vue 5. And if u have used vue u would know how processor. hungry that program is though..... Basically my question is this will that processors be any good and it will at least kick my p4 butt?

Erm, no. same cache, but the E6550 has a much higher and faster FSB. so, E6550 for me.

Or, if you can suffice with only 2MB cache (Benchmarks show little, or no performance increase over 4MB and 2MB cache) and dont mind overclocking, go for a E4300 on the cheap, fire it into a 1333MHz FSB Mobo and overclock the FSB from 800MHz to 1333Mhz.

Have a look at my sig, and thats on air cooling and stock voltages.
