Nice review!

~3 years ago I had the E8300 2.83 Ghz with 6MB cache for ~200$
Now I have the E3200 with 1MB cache, overclocked at 2.88 for 20$

The performance difference is negligible at best, especially considering the price. And although the E8400 doesn't cost that much, it's still around ~80$ used.

I disagree with the conclusion, CACHE size does NOT matter, most cases are with less than 10% (with a max of 15% in winrar) difference between 1mb and 4mb. 10% is too little to be noticed in real world applications, there is no difference in waiting 9 or 10 seconds...
