Default 3500+ and 3700+

Is there really any difference between the AMD Athlon 64 3500+ and the 3700+ besides the 3700+ having a 1MB L2 cache?

Also, does that extra 512KB matter that much at all?

I'm just angry because I got a Compaq SR1750NX at BestBuy

AMD Athlon 3500+
200GB Hard drive
16X +/- Dual layer DVD-RW drive

and now they have this for the same price!!!

1850NX Specs:
AMD Athlon 3700+
250GB Hard drive
16X +/- Dual layer DVD-RW drive
Regular 16X DVD drive

Yes, its only twice the cache. Its not much difference as you can see from the number rating.
