well the 4400+ is definitely better if price is a non-issue. if you would be interested in overclocking you might also want to look into an opteron 165/170. the 4400+ is also actually clocked at 2.2ghz not 2.0ghz.

cache is a form of high speed memory that is on the processor itself. it does make a difference but it is not vital for performance
