No they are ...

as others have said, either go with the x2 3800+ or x2 4400+.

the 4200+ and 4400+ are both P-ratings. 4400+ is a higher number, so it is better.

and you can't really measure CPU speeds in terms of clock speeds.

I thought Dual cores are not suitable for OC
they overclock wonderfully especially if you encode a lot of video because for every 100mhz gain you effectively get double that power. go have a look at the overclocking section, i think last time i was there there were at least 3 threads concerning peoples dual core overclocks

Cool cool, I won't be using it for much, a bit of gaming here, a lot of photoshop I imagine, nothing serious. Just a high spec general use PC.

Thanks for the help guys.
