I can get a 4 core, 4.2ghz for the same price as a 6 core 3.5ghz.

So the question is: More cores or higher clock rate?

Depends on the CPU's in question. Cannot judge on core count and clock speed alone. The architecture of the CPU matters as well.

What is the main use of the rig? What other components do you have? What CPUs are you talking about?
