1mb cache will give you a difference over the 512k depending on what you are doing

If your gaming, youll probably notice more of a difference with the 1mb cache, but dont forget the 4200X2 is still a great chip! It can be overclocked to 4400 speeds easily.

If you've got the money, go for the 4400.

I have to decide between a 7800GT XFX graphics card and get a x2 3800+ or get a lower graphics card and get the 4400 toledo..:\

i would get a 6800 gt cause its a great card for the price
300+$ for a gfx card is just stupid. unless you want to see your 150$ wastefully spent within a month

Lol. You should look into those 6800 Ultra's. They go for about 600 or 700 bucks a pop. This guy I knew sli'ed em'. It was crazy but DEFINETLY not worth it. Hahahahaha I feel sorry for the poor bastard who has to pay the energy bill.
