I am planning on building a computer to play top of the line games. I notcied all of AMD's 3500+, 3700+, 3800+ all come as 512kb L2 cache, they dont sell them as 1mb L2 cache. They sell a 3400+ 1 MB L2 cache but its 754 pin. What do you recommend I buy, Im not spending the money on a FX-53 or 55. I would like a processer to be 1mb L2 cache, and 939 pin. What is the importance of 1 mb L2 cache over 512kb??? Will it make a difference in gaming? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

You'll also have to add in dual-channel vs single-channel here. The 3500+ and 3400+'s are close equals and it would be pointless to talk about which one does better in what since the difference is little. Go with 3500+ since it's the future socket.
