The cost difference between these two cpu's would not be the deciding factor. If you have time please view this: Compare Intel® Products
I guess I would ask a couple of questions:
1. Do you plan to overclock?
2. Do you think you could really utilize 6 cores?
The 4 core is a higher clock. So if you don't plan to overclock, I would go for it, unless you really think you have an app that would improve with 6 cores.
