Hey, gents.

The i7-3740QM is almost $200 cheaper than the i7-3840QM and the only difference (minus the .1 GHz that I am not worried about) is the 6MB Cache to 8MB Cache. I will not be doing any video editing. Strictly for gaming, will the 3740QM 6MB cache suffice?

Is it really necessary to spend an extra $200 on 2 more MB in cache...for gaming purposes? How much is even used?

Thanks for feedback!

There is no need to spend more for 2mb cache.6mb cache is enough for go with i7 3740m.
