[Snort-users] Snort and L2 Cache

I'm curious, for a new Snort box which one will be better?
Use dual processor, P IV Xeon with for example 2.8 Ghz and 512 KB L2
Cache, or single processor P IV Xeon with 3.06 Ghz but with 1 MB L2
Cache?
Does the size of L2 cache of the processor matters in speeding up Snort,
especially in monitoring gigabit Ethernet traffic?

Thanks
