Default Need a quick opinion

At work I am using a PIII 450/100/512 Chip with the RAM at pc100. I overclocked it to 600/133/512 pc133. I am going to do a reload on it and I found a chip in the drawer thats a PIII600/133/256. Should i install that on even though the L2 cache is half of what I had, then over clock that or leave it?
