Really? If that's true then I guess it would be better to go with the e7300. I want their PC to be as fast as possible for under $700 (600-700 is what they said they'd actually like to pay).

Edit: What about the e8400? 3.0ghz is a good bit faster. Also, the L2 cache is much larger, but will that be noticeable in a non-gaming PC? I would think so, seeing as it would be able to execute programs faster...
