I have an old IBM xSeries 350 a/k/a Netfinity 6000R (8682-4RY) that
has 6GB of RAM and 4x Xeon 700Mhz/1MB L2 cache processors.
Amazingly, upgrading the firmware to the latest boosted performance by
quite a bit, but I have the opportunity to buy either 700Mhz/2MB or
900Mhz (1MB or 2MB) CPUs to get a little more speed.
Anyone have experience in terms of which one to go with? The L2 cache
on these CPUs runs at full speed, but I am wondering if going from
700/1MB to 700/2MB will be noticeable.

I can't seem to find a good source of SPECint numbers or similar to
help me in making a decision.
