    Well, I'll take the cheaper price every day...nice feature when you can find it. Initial speed, I don't care as long as it will clock up, which is certainly does. 3MB cache vs. 4MB, not sure how much of a real-world difference one would ever see with that. So in the end, cheaper is better!
    Anyway, I decided "budget range" is a compliment...
    Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L (BIOS F9); E7200 Core2Duo 2.53Ghz 1066Mhz FSB 3MB L2 (OC to 3.4Ghz); SuperTalent 2x2G DDR2-800 PC6400 CL 5-5-5-12 (T800UX4GC5); Seagate 500GB SATA2 7200 32mb cache HD; EVGA 8800GT 512MB Superclocked Edition
    Ultra X-connect X2 550-watt PSU; Vista x64 SP1 and OpenSUSE 11.0 (KDE 4.1)

    It is 3MB Vs 6MB cache between the budget and mainstream 45nm Dual cores

    But yeah, I do hear what you mean
