    Hi, I want to give my G4 400 a little upgrade that will last for a year or two until I’m happy with the Intel switch.

    I mainly run Final cut, logic Express and Photoshop, and only want to spend in the £200 region.

    Pricewise then, I would prefer to get the 1.4 but I also see some reports that this is almost as fast as the 1.8 anyway due to it having L3 cache (the 1.8 has none).
    Does anyone have any real world experience of this, or must it be the 1.8?
    There is also the 1.6 without L3.

    I would appreciate any feedback.

    I'm only really here at night.
    yep a 1.4 WITH L3 will be almost as fast as a 1.6 or 1.8 W/O L3 :p
