Well, I had just a quick spec build up from my local computer shop (www.atcomputer.com.au
) and the prices match up as following: (remember these are in AUD).
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6400 CPU / 2.13GHZ / 2MB CACHE / 1066FSB =$350
INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6600 CPU / 2.40GHZ / 4MB CACHE / 1066FSB
****! that 4mb cache one looks so tempting and so good... shame about the price... $480AUD
Asrock 775Dual-VSTA (not listed on computer shop website, but they can get it in, full specs below... i think this is compatiable)
So what's the main advantage with gaming about having such a large cache i.e. 2mb or 4mb?
