This will help a bit. Cache simply put is the middle ground where info is held before or after being processed. The standard definition is it is used to lower access to memory.
To be a bit more specific look at my article here on CPUs. It is geared towards gaming but it has info for most all.
Your CPU and modern games: A guide to those building.
When looking at a CPU first you want to be able to understand the competition, what task you are doing, and how high the CPU usage will be. Like for gaming, you don't need 6 cores to game, but you want 6 cores to render and such.
It's not all about GHz or cache, but more so cycles per clock TO the GHz and how many cores you need based on the task at hand.
