Question E4300 or E4600

At work we are about to replace some pretty old computers that are used for video editing and 2D graphical work. We are currently have a E4300 in the test setup but have been wondering if we should get a E4600 instead as there is less than a tenner in it.
They will not be overclocked or used for gaming, but will be used for video editing, 2D CAD work and photoshop.
Any ideas. Is it worth it?

For a tenner you may as well, especially as it's good for another 600MHz.

E4600 for CAD and photoshop? wow. That is pretty poor. Push the budget as much as you can. I managed to get P4 2.8HT PC's for the same task about 5 years ago. Talk to the people who use the apps. They won't be impressed with E4600's!

They aren't really pushing CAD and photoshop really that hard. And when you ask them what they want, they ask for something that would kick my gaming computers butt!
Baring in mind aswell that this setup is based on a Dell Optiplex 320 system. So ati chipset on a dell mobo and 2GB unbranded ram in a BTX case.
