More Cache will allow the processor to store more data that it uses frequently and make it easier to access rapidly. It'll vary depending on the app, the Socket 939 chip will have more memory bandwidth, but the 1MB of L2 will allow more storage space for instructions from things like video card drivers and improve gaming performance. In the end, they're bout equal, but if anything, the 3400 ClawHammer (1MB of L2) would most likele be slightly faster
