I'm thinking of going with a WD 250G for my main Windows 7 drive and see on Newegg 8, 16, 32, 64MB caches. Someone said the cache size doesn't matter much when I did a google search, is that true?

I can get a nice WD 250 GB 7200RPM drive for $44 bucks on Newegg with a 16mb cache, is this ok?

Thanks much.

Yes, it is okay to have 16mb cache...

I would go with the Samsung Spinpoint F4 320GB drive instead at the same price range!
