    I thought this was a stupid question until I went and looked at Intel's processor spec finder. The E4300 has more L2 cache, (2 vs. 1MB) but the E3300 runs 600MHz faster. They both use about the same energy due to the E3300's 45nm technology. I'm looking forward to hear other comments. Tom's hardware lists them as similar performers, for gaming. Have a feeling that if you used one for a week and then switched to the other, that you couldn't tell which one you'd rather use. Assuming stock clocks, I would think that the E3300 would be better for browsing and the E4300 would be better for office apps.

    I would say take the cache, and if you can, just overclock the E4300 the extra 600mhz if you need them.

    i would say the one with the lower stock clock and more cache if you plan to overclock.

    lol e4300... used to have one of those. Great little buggers. High multi can go FAAARRRR. But cache is always better.

    I give importance to cache and FSB over internal clock (internal clock is highly changeable, while cache is not and FSB isn't much). Also, any processor over a Sempron/Celeron. This because the might look the same but not only are architectures different, the price should be a hint: You get what you paid for.
