    they are both very important. the cache is the memory the processor uses to do teh process and teh clock speed is the sctual speed of the processor. one is not more important than the other

    For gaming, I would go with clockspeed over cache.

    Next an observation. If the system in your sig is what you are building, go with a bigger power supply. Running two 6600gt card in sli with only a 400W ps is just asking for problems.

    With a power supply, quality is MUCH more important than just a wattage rating. Good brands are antec, enermax, coolmax, and sparkle. I also recommend enlight for budget builds, however they do not make a ps in that wattage range.
