If you have the money, go for it. Higher multi = higher chance of not being limited my your mobos max FSB.
always trust The Manual ...seriously

Update:

Within a single second you may have an increase of 2-3 Frames, however, if you total up the speed at which frames have been rendered within one minute you will determine that far more frames have actually been rendered.

20FPS x 60 = 1200 Frames per Minute
23FPS x 60 = 1380 Frames per Minute

This difference can be noticed in 3DMark 06 if you look closely, as the scores are based on frame rendering over a set period of frames.

Take Quake 4 as an example, as I have seen coding from the Doom engine used within the application itself.

Quake 4 does not use the full array of SIMD Level Instructions (Single Instruction Multiple Data, SSE-SSSE3+). Even without using this full array it can obtain very decent performance as the engine is extremely efficient.

If the full array of SIMD instructions are not used then the application will not address the full 4096KB as there are not enough instructions to fill the instruction sector of the internal cache data array.

so the extra l2 explains superpi scores that are better then mine coming from a e6600 or higher when i have a faster clock, same mobo, and ram running faster then these guys, its usually only by 1sec in 1m runs but i didnt realize that it would play that much of a role for these benchmarks
