That sounds like a Xeon, their will be no such processor with 8mb L3 cache thats affordable. That can also be a Intel M, but those processor are damn expensve. Anything with 8mb cache will be extremely expensive.

Trotter, what do you mean by that? If its towards me being a little flagrant. Then i seemed a little aggressive. But i want people to understand that anything with 8mb cache from Intel is not going to be a normal desktop computer, witch would be affordable at that matter.

I know the Pentium M's have high cache sizes, and they are really damn expensive. But just because something has alot of cache dont really mean they are fast.
