Unlocking 4th core/L3 cache - X3 445 or 450 ?

There isn't much of a difference between these 2 CPUs, but I'm wondering which one would give the best chance of unlocking the 4th core and possibly an L3 cache ?

I really can't decide between the two of them... is there any difference at all ?

the only difference is the price. you can easily OC the 445 just a bit to have a 450. your chances to unlock the 4th core is the same with both of them, it's all about luck. in terms of gaming, you won't notice the 4th core anyways. the FPS between an athlon II x3 and x4 is identical in just about every game.
