well there would be a difference when you eventually try to oc since u will get higher processor speeds with the 3700. however, if you really trying to shave off some dough the 3500 would definetly not be a bad deal. honestly i dont think that there will be a great difference!!

The extra cache will make about .1GHz or 100MHz of difference in performance. Since they're the same price, go for the 3700+.
