I know I have a few threads with some similar questions, but this should be it for my computer.

My motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
My Heatsink/Fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... bcooler%2bfreezer%2b7%2bpro

I am doing video editing, compression, 'special' effects, 3d modeling, etc..

So I look at e4300 and the e6320. I really only want to do 2.8ghz on the cpu at most.
And the 4MB L2 cache on the 6320 will out perform the e4300 at the same frequency, with more cache..?

Am I on the right track?

So.. e6320? :D

I bought something like that last week (e6320). Only the purposes are different.
Anyway, my decision was based on the e6320 cache and the low price difference.

In a technical manner, i'm not sure exactly if the extra cache will have a huge impact on performance and application performance. I suppose extra L2 cache is always good...

So what i can advise you is to check the price. If it's a low difference than go for the e6320.

Check THG for benchmarking... will give you a lead:
