I'd say the 4200, if I recall benchmarks aren't that much higher on the 4400 especially for the price increase.

4400. You want the 1 mb cache. Trust me.

i have the 4200+ but the cache is higher on the 4400+ so you would probably want that.

I have the 3700 already. Would I see a performance difference with the 4400 or 4200 with my video editing?
